Some are for the paintbox quilt, and others were just because I am trying to increase the number of solids in my stash. I've been meaning to make a baby quilt for my friend B, but the paintbox quilt took over. Well, she had a lovely baby girl E on Friday, so I realized I had better get cracking! I was fiddling with some fabrics, thinking I would do a disappearing nine patch quilt, but I couldn't find enough fabrics to get excited about. The solids were calling my name! So I cut a bunch of 13" strips with varying sizes, each with a wide end and a narrow end (no measuring). I sewed them all together and then squared up to 12.5". The nine squares were done yesterday and then I sewed the top together at the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild meeting.
You can't tell from the photo here, but the borders are a light gray and the light color in the quilt itself is actually a powder blue. All are Kona solids. I don't have the names with me at the moment, but you wouldn't want to make exactly the same quilt as me, would you?
I came home and basted it and now I just need to quilt it.
It was super quick and easy. I recommend you try it if you want to make something quick, easy, and modern for that baby shower that is next week. :)
