Star Cake Quilt

I needed a quilt for a colleagues baby and I had whole six months to get to it. Obviously I started making the quilt the morning of and finished it in the nick of time. I used a free pattern by Fat Quarter Shop called Star Cakes to come up with the blocks. It went together pretty quick and for a last minute thing I do like how it turned out.

Courthouse Color Play Quilt

I took a workshop by Krista Hennebury called 'Courthouse Color Play'. This involved making an improv courthouse block quilt. I was still on the extreme color kick and decided to use all my solid scraps for this one. I simply picked one color after another hoping that it would all come together in the end. Obviously it needed a black & white binding to contrast with the colors and some hand quilting!

Quarter Log Cabins

When I saw Alison Glass's Kaleidoscope collection of shot cottons I had to try them. However I definitely don't need more fabric so decided to order a charm pack and experience the saturated colors and texture in person. When they arrived I could not just let them sit and decided to make tiny quarter log cabins from them. I just randomly paired colors with differing values and sewed a few blocks and this is what I got in the end.

I see a lot of this fabric in my future.
