Summer Soiree Baby Quilt

Here’s Summer Soiree all finished and fresh out of the dryer.  I absolutely love the bright colors, and it makes for the perfect baby quilt.  The fabric is Soiree by Lila Tueller for Moda, and I used the Stacked Coins pattern from Moda Bakeshop (I changed up the backing design just a bit).

The post wash measurement is 38 x 46.

I love this fabric so much, and luckily I have extra charm packs of it, so I just may have to make a larger one for myself!

Sandy Dunes

I’m working on a quilt for one of my cousins who recently got married.  Yes, another late wedding gift, and I also have another late wedding gift that I must start asap.  Anyway, she lives near the beach and likes a softer color palate.

A few years ago I bought a bunch of charm packs of Swell by Urban Chicks for Moda when they were on clearance.  I went through the packs and took out all the reds and pinks, which left soft blues, soft greens, soft yellows, and a little bit of brighter green..and they “spoke” to me and I got a real beachy feel.  I generally like bolder brighter colors, but, as it turns out, this is a really pleasing color palette.

It’s pieced, bound, and quilted.  Now on to the binding.

Be Giddy

My Be Giddy quilt has been complete for some time, but it took awhile to actually snap some photos.  I absolutely love this quilt (don’t I say that about all of them?!?), because the colors are so cheerful.  I used the Piece of Cake 2 Pattern, by Camille Roskelley @ Thimble Blossoms.  It’s a great layer cake pattern, and I love how the pattern shows off the fabrics.

The post wash measurement is 56 x 66.

And this yumminess is all for me! :)

When I washed the Black, White, and Red All Over quilt, a bit of the red bled onto the white.  I was able to get most of the bleed out with stain stick and multiple washes, but ever since that experience I’ve used 2 or 3 Shout Color Catcher each time I was a quilt (especially quilts that have red and white).  Boy am I glad I did this time.  The backing for Giddy is red with pink dots and the front has lots of white.  I’m certain had I not included the 3 color catchers, some of the white would’ve turned pink or red.

2 color catchers from the wash load sandwiched between a fresh out of the box sheet.  They definitely caught lots of color!
