I’m still working on making kid’s tops this week. This is my take on the “modern” quilt movement:
Since I don’t make crumb blocks or have any Chinese coin strips available, I just used a striped fabric. It sure was fast and easy, but I hope to find a cute kid’s print to put on the back – maybe for an older child.
And I had these strippy gold/blue blocks made up to pair with our Quilts of Valor group’s leftover 4-patches.
The colors look better in person – it kind of looks western since the gold/tan is more of a saddle color. And yes, the column on the left is laid out wrong … late in the evening does that to me! I’ll fix it when I lay out more and sew the rows together tomorrow.
My Bernina goes to the shop tomorrow for annual cleaning. I’ve been sewing today on my little Janome Gem that I got for Christmas. It sews like a champ and will be great to take to classes. I do miss the Bernie for the needle-down feature, but she’ll be back soon!
