Up first, the quick and dirty because I like instant gratification!
I received this great charm pack as a prize from one of the contests I entered on Sew Mama Sew. It's from the Moda line Recess. LOVE the fabric patterns, especially the little dots that look like olives. So adorable. Anyway I decided to combine four of the six colorways to create a fall to summer colorway lap quilt that is really just a great fast and furious project. I really love the colors together and once I find a good fabric to border it with I think this will be a good little lap quilt. My daughter really loves the vibrancy of the color which doesn't show much in this photo because of course I took it when it's dark in here, but these fabrics really do "pop". Part of my prize pack was a backer fabric but it's in the red and blue which are the two colors I left out of this little quilt. I think I'm going to back it in a lime green and border it in a fun stripe of some kind with these colors in it. I'll have to hunt around!!
So, what are YOU starting your year off with?!
I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and are ready to send this year packing! Eek! It's only two days away!
