Definitely Back in the Quilting Mood

So here's my other BIG project I've been working on lately.

This was inspired by philistine made on flickr. If you haven't checked out flickr lately- run over there right now and prepare to be inspired! Philistine made is one of my favs! I'm always impressed with her fresh color choices.

I wanted to keep my colors summery so I stuck to aquas/lighter blues, pinks, oranges, yellows/golds, grassy and lighter greens and a little brown.

This has been such a fun quilt to work on. I'm such a scrappy quilter at heart. The more fabrics in a quilt, the more fun they are to make!

I plan to have this one (the top atleast) finished in the next month before the baby comes.

Rosey 9 patch

This quilt is finished and ready to ship off to our newest little niece/cousin. All the fabrics in the 9 patches are little roses/flower patterns out of pink with the teeniest bit of green here and there.
The rosey fabric on the back is my favorite. I'm really happy with how this turned out and hope its new owner will love it too!

Thinking Pink

I've been such a blogging slacker lately that I haven't mentioned the fact that I'm pregnant with #3!

[Perhaps I'll just say that's my reason for not blogging. Yep, that's it. ]

In a few more months we'll have another little girlie around here (feel free to leave baby name suggestions, by the way) and I've been thinking pink when it comes to all things creative.

Buying pink fabric

Making girlie quilt tops.
This one is actually for a new niece. I've been saving up rosey, flowery fabric for awhile and since her middle is Rose I thought it would be a good fit. More pictures to come when its quilte. Hopefully they'll be better ones. Good grief to my photography skills!

And this one is for the girls in my family. Big Sister, Little Sister and Me. :)

This is my current favorite quilt and I can't wait to get it finished and ready for two little girls to snuggle under! Its not quite twin size. I'm thinking it'll probably need a companion quilt out of the same colorful scraps. Definitely more pics to come of this one.
