Everyone who's a mother know how it is when the baby's getting teeth. None of us have gotten any proper sleep the last week, and quilting is far down on my to do-list.
I'm getting more and more ufos, so far this is my "active" ufos:
-A hexagon tablerunner
-Another hexagon tablerunner (addictive, ok?)
-A pinwheel quilt (I think I can call this an ufo now, I've been working on it for over a month, but haven't done anything the last week)
-A blue simple quilt
The top is finished on almost all of these projects, I just have to order some fabric for the backsides, and hopefully go back to quilting soon.
I have a plan, though. I'll finish all of the quilts mentioned above, and then start on a "pink but not to cute"-project for my little girl. I want to use some large-scale Amy Butler, Kaffe Fassett and Heather Bailey fabrics, and mix the cute pink with some orange and yellow, and maybe a light green. I'll have to find a pattern for a simple block, to fit the large patterns.
Pink and yellow are traditionally two colors I just don't like, but lately I've started to see how they can be fitted into a quilt with other colors, and actually work. I used to buy a lot of blue, purple and green fabric, without having any idea how to put them together with other colors.
So i studied my quilt books, and started buying the same shades as I saw in quilts I like. That way I ended up with less novelty prints, and more plaids, reproductions, japanese and almost solids. I had to learn how to buy fabric, for sure. And I've spent some money while learning ;)
