But I’ve got five weeks left in 2019, and I’m going to make the most of them. I want to finish as many quilts as I can, so I’m focusing on the low-hanging fruit: Anything that already exists as a quilt top is a high priority. I just bound my QuiltCon challenge submission (pictures to come), and I’m moving on to these two large baby quilts. I’m planning on quilting a simple two-inch grid on point. The binding for both is sewn and pressed, ready to go.
|These two quilts have their own palette, but both are built around Seaside Carnival|
by Rae Ritchie for Dear Stella.
|Ritchie’s illustrations run the gamut, from whimsical carousels to tattooed mermaids.|
|The lighter peach version and this orchid one are for two sisters. I love how|
both projects are the same design and use the same fabric collection but are very different.
Once these two baby quilts are completed, I’ll be down to 18 WIPs. I think I could potentially finish an additional 4 before December 31st, which would be awesome. Fourteen WIPs is a respectable point to start the new year, right?
Feel free to start a pool betting on whether or not I can accomplish this in the comments—HA!
