You will have to bear with me this month. I WANT to be sewing, but instead I am doing this:
Which is no fun at all.
I am also making these:
Which is fun, but still not sewing.
I do have one quilt I am working on, which should be ready for the week I host TGIFF. It’s for a swap, and my partner should have received it by then.
It’s the perfect time to play blog catch-up, though!
I made a Modified Bento Box Quilt awhile ago for my friend, Alison, who was having her first baby; a little girl. I wanted something that would be preppy, cheerful and lively like Alison.
I added a few Anne Kelle fabrics to ones pulled from my stash and I used this tutorial from “Film in the Fridge”.
I was really happy with how it turned out, but I think if I make this quilt again I will starch the blocks really well before I cut them into quarters. Even though you make the cuts on grain, there was still stretching and the cut edge tended to bow outwards. I made it behave, though, after some slicing and pressing and begging.
Linking up today with TGIFF at Quokka Quilts:
