Wonky Squares

Do you remember that pile of scraps from last time?  Well, here is the result:

Wonky Squares Baby Quilt

And here is the back:

The back

I don't know what it is about primary colors that I love so much.......I guess it's just that they're so fresh and clean looking.  And besides, my quilt shop needs to sell solids so I'm helping them out by designing easy patterns for beginners for their new Kona club which will be starting soon.  Not only did I make this in a baby quilt size, but I also have one going in a lap sized which I'll show you soon.  That one will need to be quilted though since I only do baby quilts.  (Just call me chicken!)

Besides these, my swap partner in the UK did receive my quilt that I made for her in the QT swap so I can show you that.  The theme was "circle and curves" and I think I managed to pull that off:

Sweets for Rachel

The first thing I thought of when I heard the theme was an ice cream sundae.  Isn't that strange?  The real crazy thing about that is that I'm not even a fan of ice cream.

Too bad that I didn't use a heavier steam a seam product on her face and hands though.  Poor thing looks like she has chicken pox 'cause the background fabric is showing through.  LOL  Oh well, at least they're round.  LOL

So, until next time.......I'll be sewing away.  It's amazing how long this crazy piecing is taking.  E-gads, all I've been doing is thinking of stuff to make next while I sew and iron away.  For sure next week, I'll be creative again.......I promise!!!

Love the solid wonky D9P for a baby quilt. Now circles and curves would make me think of a sports car, but that is just too cute!

Circles and Curves makes me laugh - maybe because I thought I was looking at a picture of me? - lol! I DO love ice cream . . . well, I love anything sweet and bad for me and I am probably more Circles than Curves.
But thanks for the morning smile!

I didn't even notice the chicken pox until you pointed them out.

Love your swap quilt - it is wonderful ;-)

I love your interpretation of circles and curves - just like you to be "out there". I didnt notice the chicken pox until I read your paragraph - they are not obvious in the photo. Love the wonky sqaures - such a clever idea.
