the summer of quilts

This little beauty of a quilt will be number three for the summer. I've never made this many quilts this close together. In fact, I've never come close to doing this many quilts in such a short time. That means only one thing, I am getting to be a 'faster' quilter. Yay! (Previously I was ridiculously slow when it came to quilting.) I am kinda loving quilting now. LOVING. Now I can finally begin the two quilts I have planned for my family room.

This quilt was for yet another one of my sister-laws who is expecting a little girl this month. I also threw her a shower at my house on Saturday and it was such a good time. Somehow I didn't take one picture of the whole thing. Not sure how that happened. Anyways. Before I rolled this cute little quilt up to give her, I snaped a few pictures of it.

Originally, I was going to make yet another Little Man Quilt from Simplify by Camille Roskelley/ Thimble Blossoms. However, at the last minute, I decided to try something new. I decided on this awesome quilt from Tasha at A Little Sweetness that I pinned awhile back. She doesn't give the fabric measurements in the blog post, but essentially the quilt is just various widths of fabric strips. I just guesstimated widths by looking at her pictures. I wrote down my measurements so I can make this quilt again and I know I will. It makes an awesome gift and comes together in a flash.

I lucked out because Little Man calls for fat quarters and I purchased most of these fabrics at Joanns where they don't cut fat quarters from the bolt. So of course I had to buy 1/2 yard cuts. That worked out perfectly because I needed the full width of the fabric to make this quilt. I had some gray Chevron from Riley Blake that I was dying to use in a project and it worked perfectly with the other prints in this quilt. I also pulled a couple of prints from my stash. I love it when I'm able to 'shop' from my stash.

So enough blah, blah, blah. One more quilt done and done. Yay!

Happy Tuesday! Oh and happy 4th of July tomorrow to all my US readers. Not sure how the year is already half over.
