in progress

my latest project is a baby quilt for a friend who is having a little boy at the end of August.

i am making a smaller version of "welcome spring" from moda bakeshop using the blue/beige strips from a bali pop (cotton candy) with a gorgeous fossil fern fabric as the background - i am aiming for a neutral beachy look.
i have used a double-sided Hobbs fusible batting and am making this a quilt-as-you-go project

all joined up

blocks are finally all sewn together...

i have ordered some of this gorgeous fabric from Spoonflower and it will become part of the backing for this part of my quilt.

i am planning on having a 36" square of the "selvages on steroids" fabric and surrounding it with a stripy border of selvedges... good thing i have a lot of selvedges!

woo hoo the blocks are sewn!

selvedge blocks are sewn together...
now to join the blocks.  once the centre is joined i think i will quilt the centre, add the borders then quilt the borders, it should make the quilt smaller and easier to manoeuvre during the quilting stage

selvedge progress

triangles have been trimmed and sewn together into pairs
and then arranged on my make-shift design wall - my piece of green felt just wasn't big enough so i had to expand onto the lace curtain!
