more done

Here's blocks C and D. Just have to square them all up yet.
Block C
Block D

Hope to get the other blocks finished today. Then it's onto the sashing, woohoo! I really like this pattern so may just do another one. I realize now that my choices in fabric weren't the best; should have gone for more modern prints but this one is for my living room and I didn't want it too bold.

Oh, Fransson's quilt-along

So decided to do another quilt-along. I was going to just read-along but after a bit, I just had to join in the fun too. Plus, Elizabeth's tutorials are just so well written. I've learned alot already. I decided to go with fabrics from the same line of Moda that I'm using for my applique project. The colors are perfect for both my kitchen and living room, where this quilt will go.
Here's the fabrics:

Here is one of each of the blocks.

I've quickly realized that my 1/4" seam allowance is not as accurate as I thought it was! This will be great practise for me in accuracy. These blocks are wonky; can't be bothered to do them over but hopefully the rest will be better.

doll quilt

Inspired by the doll quilt sew-along over at Sew, Mama, Sew, I decided to do one for my dd. I did the border a little differently though. I planned on trying my hand at free motion quilting with it, but now can't decide. There is a brownish toned fabric that I wish I hadn't used. So may do some applique work to cover them up a bit. Can't decide right now so guess it'll sit for now. Here's the top so far:

And the third BOM is out over at Bunny Tales, so working on the fabric selection right now. A very cute block!
