I haven't been much of a quilter and wondered why people would find it satisfying to cut up yardage just to sew it back together in shapes. But, now I am starting two quilts! The last quilt I made was a tied Quilt in a Day for my daybed in high school. Long time ago and a very simple quilt.
Quilt one will be the Double Nine Patch:
from the "More Layer Cake, Jelly Roll & Charm Quilts" book.
I really like the designs in this book and hope to make several others. It's a nice blend of modern and traditional.
Here are the sashing, Bella Solids in gray, and the backing fabric, Reunion Dates (in Vanilla). I love the grays and the modern feel of the fabrics. Hopefully, this will be a lovely quilt when finished.
My second quilt is from the Craftsy Block of the Month series. My mom is working on one and it caught my interest. I signed up for the free series today. I can't wait to figure out what fabrics I want to use and get going on it.
