I think I may not have posted about this quilt at all, because I only had time to sew or blog, and sewing won! My cousin picked these fabrics and mailed them to me, and I did the labor as a gift for her and her baby, due next month. I am proud that I finished this so far before the due date.
The pattern is “Off Track” by Allison at Cluck Cluck Sew. I received “Seville” for Christmas this year, though my husband forgot to give it to me under the tree. We found it in his sock drawer sometime in January, when I got out a stack of new fabric an needed something to do with it. That was when I remembered having seen the telltale envelope in early December and asked him whatever happened to it.
I love the colors my cousin chose. I think the fabric line is “Taza.” I wouldn’t normally have picked this palette, but I am really happy with it, and it has inspired me to think outside of my normal color box more often.
Seville is my current Work in Progress:
I have a couple of possible hacks for this pattern, but I am not sure if they are improvements or not, so I’ll wait to see how it progresses to post about it.
Love them both! Nice job!! Yellow and gray are awesome together.
Hooray for finished projects (especially early-finished ones) and for pretty works-in-progress!
This quilt is really beautiful. There’s something so lovely about a quilt draped over a chair, or a bed, as opposed to being laid out flat. So pretty. And I love the story about finding the fabrics in the sock drawer–classic! I’ll look forward to your hacks on the new quilt (which is lovely, by the way). I sometimes wonder if its the magazine editors or the pattern writers, but sometimes I think that a bunch of non-sewers are writing the things.
Best. Story. Ever!! I love that he forgot to give it to you!! Best day in January, right?!?
BEAUTIFUL quilt! I love it and the WIP looks wonderful!!
The yellow quilt is so professionally done, Jenny!
And the florals on the second one that you are starting? Soooooooo fun! Really great stuff!
