handmade birthday club…take four
it’s august, and it’s time to celebrate jamie’s half birthday!
she told us that she has a nearly empty wall in her studio that would love a collection of mini quilts, so that’s where i started. after that, i stalked her pinterest, and found this inspiration on her quilting board
so with this information, i raided my stash and got busy.
the pattern was free, but ultimately i had to make up one of my own, because the pattern was for two solid colors, and gave specific cutting directions for strip piecing. i couldn’t wrap my brain around it, so i just drew it instead.
i was met with just one snafu, between dark green and light blue. you can see how i had to insert a turquoise color to make things even. i used a dark gray as a neutral background. i wanted to do an intricate backing with patches of solid colors in rainbow order from top to bottom, but decided to just do a rainbow border instead.
here’s what she had to say
pretty happy with it!
next up is brooke, but i gave her a proposition, and am waiting to hear back from her first, before beginning.
i still have a few more things to write about, but am still waiting on a couple of things first.
that’s how it always seems to go…wait, wait, wait…then rush, rush, rush
