Couldn’t Wait

I couldn’t wait on the fabric I ordered.  I found something in my stash for the centers of each block.  I don’t know if the fabric in the picture will make it for the corners or not.

I tell you, this quilt is going to make my eyes bleed and test my patience… it is SOOO out of my comfort zone.

Dotty

Last summer, the shop hop on Oahu had prizes.  I won one, a jelly roll of assorted fabrics.  The theme of the fabrics was dots.  It contained 30 strips.  Most of the patterns that I wanted to use needed 40+ strips. 

I scrounged around my stash and came up with 10 more dot fabrics to add to them:

Why am I bringing this up?

My son came downstairs this morning and stated his favorite cuddling quilt was getting too short.  I guess that it was inevitable.

I was looking for a fabric collection that was good for a boy, but couldn’t find one.  Everything seemed too girly.  I then remembered about the fabric I won.

I will be making Pineapple Surprises from the book "Jelly Roll Quilts”.  I ordered some tan Moda Bella Solids for the background.

Hopefully this quilt will be long enough for him for a while.
