What's on the design board?

I am always happy to finish something that was on the design board from the last month. And I did complete the table toppers I was working on in February along with a few other things during the month. I love when things come together and get scratched of the to-do list. However there are still a few small projects left over from my new year's resolution that need to be completed but at least the big ones are all done.

Backyard Fun Quilt TopWith that said, this is a quilt I made from a pattern called Backyard Fun that is in a book called Precut Quilts. I chose to make this because I had a fat quarter pack with 8 different fabrics in it and this pattern called for 5 fat quarters and some yardage for the background. Luckily I did have some yardage that was enough to make this quilt top. And I would have a few fat quarters left for another project.

The image in the book showed a quilt top made with medium value prints for the main blocks and a darker value print for the connector blocks. My fabrics were dark value prints for the main blocks so I chose a lighter value print for the connector blocks. It totally changed the look of the quilt top. I will post more about that when I have the quilt finished.

But for now, this is the project hanging on the design board. March has come in like a lion with a day where the forecast is snow all day long. It feels like a great day to spend in the sewing studio.
