Quilt Number Two done! Pictures to follow.

I gave my mother the quilt I have been working on for the past few months. I bought the turquoise fabric months ago – when I was still working on the Tetris quilt in fact – because I saw it and realized that it would be a perfect base for a quilt for my mom. It was originally intended to be a Mothers Day present and then I didn’t start it in time, and shortly after finally beginning it my grandmother died and I changed the design to include pieces of her clothing. The finished product was rather beautiful and I brought it with me to Minnesota to present to my mom, after putting in the final hems the night before. My aunt took pictures of it and I will post some as soon as they are emailed to me.

At the moment I am between quilts. My friend Sarah has asked me to make a baby quilt for their baby due in mid-December. When I went to buy batting at Jo-Ann Fabric a couple weeks ago I spent a good ten minutes excitedly choosing fabrics for the baby quilt even though I wasn’t going to buy any. I focused on bright green as the base with some yellow and a turquoise. I don’t have a design yet so I don’t even know how many colors I’ll need to choose. I also spent some time in the Baby Quilt section looking at the fabrics with ducks and baby bottles and little footprints. Perhaps the back will be more traditionally babyesque.

I have also been asked to make a Kid Icarus quilt, which is a Nintendo game from the ’80s. He hasn’t made the design yet, although it looks like it will be pixel-based with four colors total and focus on just the character and not the level. That will probably be the next one, depending on how soon he buys the fabrics.
