Goodbye January, Hello Quiltuary!

5 Feb

I haven’t been working on much else except these quilts in January. Okay, let’s face it, I’ve been working on nothing else. But I’d say three completed quilts in one month is pretty good, right? They’re small, easy, throw quilts, but let’s not mention that. Ahem, I mean they were really complicated and difficult. I’m really amazing.

I completed the quilt top of this first one back in December or even November, but was too lazy to draw on lines for my quilting. I wish the pictures were a little bit better, but that’s what I get for living in Oregon.  I could have made one more block to finish the corner, but I thought it might make the quilt a little more interesting if I made the corner slightly different. I’ve done similar with two other quilts and always liked the outcome. I’m on the fence about it here, but too late to change it now, so I might as well learn to like it. If you look really closely, you can see that a few of the gray squares are a slightly different shade. That’s because I ran out of fabric and had to order another batch. You CAN tell if you look closely, but it doesn’t really bother me because I don’t look at it that closely on a normal basis. That’s why you should always order enough fabric, huh? Have you ever had something like this happen to you? Did it bother you? I’ve practiced really hard at not letting things like this bother me. Or maybe I’m just a careless quilter. Either way, I haven’t hated a quilt yet.

Here is a closer picture for you to see a little bit of the detail.

Here are all three completed quilts. They’re all three resting on the back of my couch right now. You can never have too many quilts, you know? Chugging right along with my goal of owning 80 quilts by the time I die. Or was it 800? No matter.  I am right on track.

I used Moda’s Ruby Sundae print for the pink quilt and Bari J’s Country Lane print for the other two quilts. I just love all of them, especially stacked. Don’t you?

Fiyero really likes all three of the quilts. Now if I hadn’t put a pea in the middle of them, he could get some much needed beauty sleep.

I’d love to hear what you’ve been working on.
