Sunday Stash – Eeking By

By some miracle, I managed to finish the Bonnie and Camille quilt, now known as “The Kitchen Sink”, between quilt show duties.  The show went great, with lots of good feedback from the attendees and delighted people in general. Super fun.

Orange & Teal Baby QuiltI’ll post pictures of The Kitchen Sink later this week, but in the mean time, here are pictures of the Orange & Teal charity baby quilt I finished last week.

It went together quick since the blocks are simple mixes of 9 patches and 4 patches, and I guess 1 patches? Just big old blocks of fabrics!

I did straight line quilting with a thicker orange thread.

Here’s a closer picture of the center – the chunk of fabric in the upper left was the color inspiration for the teal and orange with pops of yellow.

  1. Some baby/child is going to cherish that quilt. Love the pieced backing too. I did that style of piecing on a king quilt backing and one of my granddaughters says it is a “ladder”.

  2. I tend to piece my backs these days and sometimes seem to spend an inordinate amount of time stuffing about to put in left over bits. I swear I spent more time on the back of Scrap in a Box than I did on the borders. I had lots of fun though
