I love the start of a new project. Especially when I get to return to an old hobby of mine: quilting!
I haven’t made a quilt in many years. Not since I did a Sunbonnet Sue quilt for my neice. Now, I’m meeting once a week for a quilting group with some ladies from my church (including my mom!). It’s been interesting and good to have a project goal set for me each week.
Now, I want to make my boys an outdoor play quilt for summer – I decided sailboats would be unique and fun! Then I found these cute prints by Robert Kaufman for inspiration. I don’t know how many of these I will actually use in the quilt, as I need a lot of solid colors to for the pattern I’m making.
But I like the shape of the sailboat, which I’ll use as my inspiration for the applique boats I’m making!
This week, I need to finalize my fabric choices and start cutting out. Technically this pattern is a 51″ square wall hanging, but I will just keep it for the boys to play on as my color/design choices don’t match a single thing in my home!
I’ll keep you all posted on my progress!
