I have waited ten weeks for the silence to return, and I deserve some quality time in my sewing space now that it has.
In fact, my first full day of quiet resulted in a finished baby quilt ...
|The salmon, yellow, and gray in these fabrics are so pretty.|
I’ve sewn this pattern, Cheryl Brickey’s Candy Circle Quilt, before, back in 2014. (See the tutorial on the Moda Bake Shop here.) I don’t usually tackle a quilt pattern more than once, but I had a single charm pack of Corey Yoder’s Sundrops, and it was all that I needed to create the lovely variety in this ring of squares.
|The back was a great place to use up some stashed half-yards.|
I quilted this project the same way I did my original Candy Circle quilt. I quilted along each side of the center seams and then quilted diagonally along the 2-inch squares. This approach required very little marking, and I love how the diagonals cross at the center of each edge.
|The quilting is simple, just the way I like it!|
This is the first of five quilt tops of mine that need to be quilted. I want to wrap up another quilt or two before I embark on something new. Time will tell if I am disciplined enough to stick to that plan!
What are your sewing goals for the fall? Did you have a productive summer, or were you, like me, squeezing in sewing time while chasing after kiddos?
Linking up to Finish It Up Friday ...
