April showers bring.....uh....June flowers? I started this quilt a little while ago, intending to have it done by May. Eh, life happens, right?
The design is a version of the Easy Lap Quilt in Bend the Rules Sewing. I just kind of made it up as I went along, which was totally fun! The fabrics are all from Amy Butler, Midwest Modern 1 and 2. I LOVE these colors together! The quilt top is finished. Haven't decided what the back will look like, but I love the huge Optic Blossom print and will probably include that.
The size of this quilt is not standard, since I improvised most of it. I don't know if that's a good or bad thing yet, but I like the size. If I wanted it bigger, I think I'd add a large border of the gray around the whole thing. It's about 70 by 70 right now.
While I'm deciding what to do for the back, I think I need a smaller project that I can just bust out really quickly. Sometimes getting involved in a huge project consumes me and it helps to shift focus for a little while. I got the book One Yard Wonders recently and will pick something from there to review for you all! The book looks AWESOME and I have so many random yards of fabric to use!
Though, Iris would prefer that my focus remain on her. Cats. So demanding.
