After a year and a half of owning the fabulousness that is Ruby by Bonnie and Camille for Moda I finally got to cut into it. I was saving it for my baby girl I hoped to have and she'll be here the end of July. I went from a bunch of cut out pieces last week to a finished quilt top this week and a few other small projects.
|It all started with a WHOLE bunch of chain piecing. I was so impressed with how long this was I had to take a picture.|
|Here's the full top all finished. Isn't it lovely! I followed the All Framed Up tutorial found on the Moda Bake Shop. I loved it and while there was a whole bunch of piecing for the size I really like how it turned out. The quilt is 40 inches square.|
|Next in line is this fun fat quarter bundle for my oldest boy. It's Pirate Matey's for Riley Blake. I got them all pressed flat and ready to be cut and I hope to get to that this week. I'm doing a fun pattern for this one from the book Simply Fat Quarters.|
|Last week while poking around blog land I found this post from Dizzy Quilts. She made the awesome Open Wide Zippered Pouch out of some Ruby fabric and I knew I had to have it. I happened to have a few fat quarters of Ruby and mixed them with two other cordinating fabrics and made two zipper pouches. They are so awesome! For one thing they really do open wide and I made the large version and you could almost fit a car in it. Well, not really but anything else you had in mind would do. As my dad would say, "It's a good and valuable thing - you can put stuff in it."|
