I have been wanting to make a yellow/aqua quilt for awhile. I am really into those colors I painted the girls bathroom yellow and everything else is aqua and I love it. I grabbed all the yellow fabrics I have been collecting and pulled out the Kona solid in Azure to go with it.
After debating on what to do Gwen told me to make a triangles quilt and hey why not I have not ever made one so it would be great to step out of my comfort zone of my typical squares ( which don't get me wrong is my favorite).
I am going to try to have each block be a different arrangement of triangles aka flying geese blocks and hopefully I can keep that up.
Then today I was thinking about and stalking my partner in the Doll Quilt Swap and really wanted to get started on it. After thinking about it I ditched my original idea of books and decided a simpler quilt was more my mood and seemed to be more to the tastes of my partner. I know she loves Far Far Away so that is what I used for the base of my blocks and if she doesn't like them I know my daughters will love it. They are the ones that I bought the FFA for anyway.
I am going to place them off center and pair them with linen or a solid of yellow, orange or pink. I really need to lay them on each and decide what looks best.
Since it has been raining here in good ole Orange County the girls have taken to playing in the garage and staying in their jammies most of the day. They have been totally entertaining me with their singing and dancing.
I am very lucky to have girls that love to play together and love the new house. It allows me to feed my passion of sewing.
