I have several new goals for the third quarter of 2019. First up is my Vertices quilt that uses fabric from the Loved to Pieces collection by Mr. Domestic along with coordinating solids. For the last couple months I’ve been working on equilateral triangle blocks for this quilt. When I laid out the blocks on my bed to arrange them, the overall effect felt chaotic to me, so I made a design change. I’m not going to add half-rectangle blocks to the beginning and end of each row. Instead I’m going to use light green sashing and borders to insert some order.
My second planned project is to make a much calmer complementary half-rectangle block throw-size quilt to my Vertices quilt that also uses Loved to Pieces fabrics and some of the half-rectangle blocks I’ve already made:
In keeping with the turquoise color scheme, I’m going to make the following projects:
3) A Sparkler Mini using the pattern that Yvette@Quilting Jetgirl wrote for the Summer Sampler 2019. Below are my fabric choices for this project (Jade Green, Capri, Aqua, and White):
4) I’m going to use similar solids for a baby-sized quilt using Kristi@Initial K Studio’s Reflection pattern. The fabrics will be Sea Glass (on order), Aqua, Azure, Capri, and White.
5) I have yet another project on my to-do list that will use leftover Loved to Pieces fabrics and possibly some of the solids pictured above. It is a baby-sized “kitty” quilt for my cat, Bug, using Jaybird Quilts’ Alphabet Soup Bonus Pattern: Name Quilt. I have the book and the specialty rulers, and I think this will be a fun project to make.
6) And last but definitely not least, I will finish the comfort quilt pictured below for a friend who tragically lost her daughter last month:
Linking up to 2019 Qtr 3 Finish-A-Long.
Hi Mary! What a great list for the third quarter. The comfort quilt is really coming along nicely, and my very favorite part is the different colored rays along the top row. It’s really a stunning piece and I’m so proud of you for figuring out how to do that on the fly! All those delicious teal/turquoise colored fabrics – ooh-la-la, they will be fun to work with. Makes me want to make another Postcard quilt or something along those lines to use more of those fine solids. I look forward to seeing the change of direction in Vertices. It can’t help but be great with the fantastic start you have on it, plus those fabrics are divine. ~smile~ Roseanne
great list and good luck!
