I'm back! More baby quilts are needed, so I finished up all the Scrappy Mountain Majesties blocks last weekend. They go together very quickly and have many setting options. This is what I decided on and sewed them all together yesterday. I love it! I think it would be cool to make a bed-sized version. It is 45 x 46 inches.
My friend, who I am making this for, now lives in Alaska, so I want a cozy minky backing. I did a curbside pick up at Joann's last night of a yellow minky. As soon as I got back from my pick up, I got a text that my friend's grandson had arrived.
I thought about just making another Name Quilt, but this is for one of my closer friends and I want to make her grandson a Bjorn Bear Quilt. The nursery is in sage--I went to Joann's first thing this morning and picked up this Kona. It is tarragon--there were not many choices, but this was a swatch I had considered. I went ahead and grabbed a gray minky for the backing. I am totally out of navy embroidery floss, so I grabbed a skein of it and some needles. This was my first time in Joann's since February. Everyone had masks on which is a rarity in our town. At the checkout stand, they had the new Quilt Sampler magazine--score!
My mom and dad got me The Bonnie & Camille Quilt Bee book as part of my birthday present and it arrived. I want to get it spiral bound. I am planning on ordering the Shine On fabric that is featured in the book and I will probably mix in some more of from my B&C collection.
Well, I am off to start cutting out bears!
Have a great week!
