WIP Friday

I was having a lot of trouble figuring out what I was going to make for round 2 of the doll quilt swap. You may remember I made my first quilt ever for the first round and Lauri liked it very much — thank goodness. This time my partner has offered no info as far as likes and dislikes and I was just overwhelmed with the possibilities.

WIP - Doll Quilt Swap II Preview

Last weekend my mom and I went to a new-to-us quilt shop where I saw a fat quarter stack of Joel Dewberry‘s new line, chestnut hill in the earth colorway — I actually like the stream colorway better and I think I’ll be hunting some down at some point. I decided to do something rail-fence inspired. I cut out the strips and made twelve blocks but as I was laying them out I was noticing how boring it all looked. Hmmm. Later I was looking at Amy Karol‘s blog and saw a post about a child’s shirt. Wow. I had already been thinking about embroidery and I love those little buttons and I can never get enough french knots and I was well on my way to being inspired. Funny how that happens sometimes.

    what a pretty color combo. I love that feeling when an idea percolates and then gels into something worth getting your hands busy.
