The procrastinator in me is alive and well. This is quilt number three and although I swore to myself that I would get it completed and photographed waaay in advance, I ended up sprinting home 10 minutes before the baby shower began in order to snap some pictures while I had good light and then quickly throw it in a gift bag with some tissue…..similar to the last two quilts. Sigh. So that is my excuse of why all my quilt pics are not dynamite and I am sticking to it. I worry that if I ever get around to making a quilt for myself that it will never get completed because obviously the only thing that motivates me is deadlines.
And for the quilting I did random semi-straight lines-
If you like me and new to quilting and sewing this is a great project. All you need is a Kona Solids bright palette charm pack and white fabric cut in 2.5 inch strips. If you are really adverse to cutting fabric you also could buy a white fabric jelly roll. I really love how the colors fade into each other around the color wheel, but think it would also look nice all mixed up.
Why is black and white impractical? Especially in the hip chevron? Because this is the fabric I selected for dog beds in the master bedroom. The white is perfect to show every single muddy pawprint and the black is calling for dog hair to just stick to it. But I told myself that really it was a good thing that they will look dirty so quickly…that way I will be forced to wash it
everyday more frequently. So really I am just adding a incentive for keeping things cleaner….at least that is what I told myself at the fabric store. I can rationalize anything.
Anyway I think that the pattern will look great in the slowly coming together master bedroom. I might even let the pups lay on them. …if they wipe their paws of course.
