So I know I promised an Easter decoration but it just didn't turn out blog worthy so I decided instead to show you what else I've been making. It all started with an idea for another baby girl quilt.
I decided to do some more half square triangles again. Small ones. They took a long time to make. A very long time. And I made a ton of them. At first I thought I would make an entire quilt top out of them but then when I laid them out it seemed way to busy. So I added some white borders. I really like how it turned out now. I quilted in straight lines in all the white space. I haven't done my quilting this dense before and I really like it - I don't like that it took a long time but I like the effect.
I used Ana Davis' Animal Parade fabric collection plus a few Kona solids and I can't remember what or where the floral on the back came from but I thought it coordinated so nicely.
And, of course, since I had leftover fabric I made some pillows.
Well, 1 pillow and 2 pillow covers to be exact. I won't bore you with a ton of details but the patchwork one has a super soft minky dot back and the other two are applique projects. One of the prints from the collection featured some cute animals that I thought were just the perfect size to be cut out and appliqued onto a pillow.
Of course, all these items are available in my etsy shop and just to thank all my loyal blog friends please use code GSGBLOG10 to get 10% off your total purchase from now until April 15th.
