Here is a pretty baby quilt I decided to name Paris in the Spring when I landed on the Eiffel Tower backing fabric for it hiding in my stash.  I started with a few pieces of Lillybelle fabric by Bari J. for Art Gallery fabrics, some aqua and pale blue solids and one little pink piece of fabric from 3 Sisters' line Paris Flea Market.  Et voilĂ !

I quilted it with the wavy stitch on my Bernina (otherwise known as stitch number 4) and a pale pink Aurifil 40 wt thread.  Finished dimensions are 35" by 43".

This little cuddly one is made with scraps of solid Kona cottons that have been building up around here.  I love making log cabin blocks and I am rather partial to the courthouse steps variation I've used in this quilt.  The sashing is Kona Oyster. The backing is a nice soft red flannel from Riley Blake.  I've used my usual Aurifil 50 wt threads for piecing and quilting.  The finished dimensions are 33.5" by 37".

Ok, ok, ok. I said the next economy block quilt I made was not going to be scrappy. But here I am. It looks a lot like the one I just made last week, doesn't it? But I started with 3.5" inch squares in the centre, rather than 4.5" and spent a little more time fussy cutting. I love the littler blocks. I love the American Jane backing and other American Jane fabrics and scraps that I used throughout the quilt. This one finished at 31" by 38" and is for sale in my Etsy shop!

A little scrappy quilt I just completed. I have to admit, I struggle a bit with scrappy. It may seem like a "quilter's sin" but I do. I like congruous. I like a lot of harmony and I like fabric lines. I like scraps in rainbow arrangements, though! 

 Anyways, I DO like the economy block and you might see this block again here. In matchy, matchy fabrics, haha!  And I DO like this quilt.  I can't resist it's crinkliness and sweetness.  It is a quilt after all, and a quilt means LOVE.

What can I say?  I had a craving for nice and simple squares in a rainbow of colour.  I cut piles and piles of squares at 4.5" each from my stash and scraps.  Backed with flannel and machine quilted in straight lines, both of these are so cuddly and such a bright shot of joy.   These are now for sale in my Etsy shop.
I had to share some Instagram pictures, as my little son joined me one day when I began these quilts and sweetly drew his own charm quilt designs in my notebook, and then helped be a quilt "holder" with his bigger brother so I could share my work in progress on Instagram.

QUILT STATS:
Fabrics: 4.5" squares from my stash and scraps
Batting: Warm & Natural
Backing: Riley Blake flannel
Binding: Scrappy (quilt 1) and Navy Oval Elements (quilt 2)
Thread: Aurifil 50 wt for piecing and quilting
