Here we go again, I’m creating an insane pile of tops that I need to quilt. I have a ton of “work” sewing to do but I couldn’t get inspired there, this charm pack was calling. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t excited about this one at all, it looked better online than in my hands. But I like how it morphed once I was playing with the pieces.
This is Hideaway by Lauren & Jessi Jung for moda. I adore green, especially for babies.
I think it could have been fairly gender neutral but I had to use some of the extra squares and appliqued some flowers, girly now, huh?
I let the petals go all whimsical, I think it works. This one will also be hand quilted & shouldn’t take nearly as long as the Central Park one I’m quilting now (which is kicking along pretty well). I think I’m going to continue the flower theme by quilting some in the borders. Very fast project, I had the top together (minus the applique) in about an hour.
Editing Tues to add a pic of my WIP. I saw a Ticker Tape Quilt Along on a blog and had to hop on the bandwagon, I love TT’s! Here’s my morning progress, I’m digging a QAYG project, one less top to get to “later.”
