I began this project in April 2018 with one of my granddaughters in mind. She will be receiving it for her birthday this year.
I am very happy with the quilt, and I think she will be too!
I know that you can’t see the quilting. It is quilted all over with bees. I used a cute bee pantograph from Urban Elementz.
I also used the same fabrics that I used to piece Sugar Town…a birthday gift for the close cousin of this granddaughter.
Since it was an OMG project, I posted updates here, here, here, here, and here.
The Rainbow Scrap colors for May are rose and pink.
I am having fun participating in the Squared Away Sampler project. Here are my three 5″ unfinished Baton Rouge blocks:
On the design wall are all of my blocks for the Squared Away Sampler:
I will be linking up with So Scrappy. Check out the link and see what others have done with pink and rose this month!
If you would like to participate in the RSC18 Squared Away Sampler project, click on the link to read all about it. You can also visit The Academic Quilter for great tutorials on making the blocks. No need to make the 5″ block size that I am making. Perhaps you want to make a 20″ block or something in between!
Learn about a variety of blocks, use those scraps and have fun!
Here is what else I have been working on:
It has been raining, but I have done quite a bit of weeding, and the flower beds are looking pretty happy!
My April goal was to start a new project, the Butterfly Garden quilt, and get it to the flimsy stage.
I was able to do that, and I have since added borders and fused applique.
The applique still needs to be stitched down. It blends with the background, so I may choose threads that will create contrast.
Since the borders are a pink and rose fabric, I think I can consider this as an RSC18 project for this month.
But I do have the May Squared Away Sampler blocks for RSC18 on my list to make this month.
I am linking up with So Scrappy. Go check out the other tickled pink projects!
