The cow quilt top is almost finished– I just need to add borders and it’ll be ready for quilting. This means it’s time to sketch out my next project!
This one is for another one of my friends from high school who’s expecting her first baby in January. She requested something in neutral colors, yellow and greens, so that it’ll work for this baby and future ones as well. I headed to the fabric store, looking for a fun print, and found this awesome kid-friendly fabric with turtles on it!
I needed to come up with a design that could feature such a large print (the big turtles are about 2″ long), so I decided to try my hand at a big-block medallion quilt. A bit of doodling later, I came up with this design. The colors aren’t quite right, they’re actually bold primaries in person, but this should give a good idea of how it’s going to look when it’s finished.
I can’t wait to start this project, once I get caught up on a couple of older things in the sewing queue.
