While I was neglecting my blog over the summer I got a couple of quilts completed.
I know I'd blogged a little, at least that I was selecting fabric, about the quilt I was making for my friend, Jana. I visited her back in May and she asked that I make her a lap sized quilt using some Robert Kaufman fat quarters that she had purchased. I took the fat quarters home and dug through my stash to find fabrics that complemented the fabrics she had given me. I used Fresh Lemons' Lemon Squares quilt pattern. The finished quilt was totally adorable and Jana loves it.
I thought I'd at least blogged about selecting the fabric for this next quilt - but no - I had blogged nothing. Not only is it now complete, but I've been napping under it for the last four weeks. Ha! I nicknamed this quilt "California Girl" because it reminds me of home. :)
The finished quilt is big enough for a twin bed, allowing me to make patches large enough to really appreciate the prints. A large number of the prints in this quilt came from my "OMG I love this fabric" pile of my hoard. Heather Ross, Elizabeth House, Amy Butler, and other favorites designers are all included in this quilt.
There are a couple other quilts I'm currently working on, including quilting the Christmas Mod Bento Box top that my mom and I made while she was visiting. I've also pulled fabrics for a couple of fall inspired quilts. Since I'm totally in love with how "California Girl" came out that I think I'm going to do both of the fall quilts the same way.
