What's Up

Had intended to post this yesterday like normal but I spent the day in Tulsa. That was not my plan, so I didn't get one lick of sewing in.
Wanted to show the progress made on the 2 baby quilts. 

The first is done in turquoise and gray with the Twisted Blossom pattern that was a QAL by Sew Kind of Wonderful. I just love their Quick Curve Ruler, it's a lot of fun to use.
Actually  enjoy it so much that it's also the tool I'm using for our stitch groups paint chip challenge.

I'm going to use their pattern Urban Nine Patch.
Now if you haven't heard the paint chip challenge this is our stitch group spin on it.
  We take the first letter of our first name, our middle name, and our last name.
Our twist is we added the first letter to our maiden name that makes now 4 choices.
From those letters that you have in your name you are to find a paint chip color that name starts with that letter
Here are mine.

My initials; K L B C

Then you're allowed to use a neutral which can be white, black or gray..... your choice
I chose grey.
Total now it's five colors.

We decided for the pattern it will be a nine patch.....
 any type of nine patch....
no limitation on what kind.

We also decided that it would be the size of a baby quilt so when we are completed we will donate our quilts.

This is what I have so far.

Lousy picture.
I had all these pinks that match one of the color chips nut not enough fabric. 

I have to look for some on the shop hop this weekend. Taking a bus to 3 states and 9 shops. 
Going to be fun.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
