Hot Off the Press - I finished my Jelly Ohs quilt last night. I love how faded and vintage this quilt turned out. I had a couple of errors in judgement along the way. For instance, my idea to use the apricot gingham for the sashing was a disaster, it was much too bright for this soft quilt. Often the designer DOES know best and I stuck with her choice of the soft brown gingham. I also made one block where the background fabric was too strong, so it will likely end up pieced into the back of the quilt.
I got word that my Blended Quilt is on its way back from the longarm quilter in Idaho. I am so excited to see it. I'll probably get it on Thursday and will share a picture then.
Next up, I need to decide on a pattern for a shop sample I'm making with the beautiful new Moda Portobello Market FQ bundle my quilt shop owner brought back from Market and gave to ME to use in a sample! I promised to make a Miss Rosie's design and have tentatively decided to make Two Step, but I'd still like to see the new Carrie Nelson designs from Spring Market to see if there is a better choice (Carrie did tell me she designed one of her new patterns using Portobello Market, so using that pattern would be pretty perfect for my shop sample). Stay tuned!
