Another Quilt Top Finished
First of all: so sorry I went MIA for the last couple of weeks! My husband came down with pneumonia and we ended up going to the hospital to take care of it. It was pretty scary at first but the awesome staff there diagnosed and treated him quickly. Within a few days he was feeling much better, thank goodness! I was getting pretty swamped trying to run two businesses by myself. It’s taken me all this time just to get caught up again.
And of course I couldn’t really touch my sewing machine the whole time. Between taking care of him and making sure everything was running smoothly, I had no free time. Yesterday we were able to spend the whole day together just relaxing and not thinking about work AT ALL. It was so nice.
And today I finally had some time to spend on my quilting. I’ve been working on this Positively Perfect quilt I posted about a few weeks ago. The pattern is from the Moda Bakeshop and I used Moda’s Cape Ann by Oliver and S. When I finished all of the plus and dot blocks, I wasn’t sure about my fabric selection… it seemed like there wasn’t enough contrast between the pink blocks and the white background:
And I was afraid it was too pink. I decided to use green and blue fabrics from my stash for the borders to make it a bit more gender neutral, since it’s going to be a wedding gift for a couple getting married next month.
Now I just need to piece the back together and quilt it. The pattern writer did straight line quilting vertically and horizontally, but I think I will do a simple diamond pattern. I think it will look nice on this pattern and it should go pretty quickly… which is good, since I need to get this thing in the mail in the next couple of weeks to be in time for the wedding!
Happy quilting everyone, hope you had a nice weekend.
