I was working on this quilt trying to get it finished before someone turned 1 year old, but did not finish!! I had fun with this cute line of fabric. It is Wee Wander by Sarah Jane. It is a really sweet palette of colors. The bees and the jars are my favorite, my brothers’ and I would collect bees and butterflies and put them in jars when we played outside in our yard growing up. Such fond memories!!
I think the little girl in the top center is such a cute little accident, well not completely. I saw that she was in there and was turned sideways so I turned her around and I am glad that I did.
I made sure to take a picture of the whole quilt top before it was completed. It is the Trip Around the World pattern by Bonnie of Quiltville. Although it is not scrappy, I do love it. I also cut my squares 4 inches rather than the usual 2.5 inches. I think because of the print size it should show a little more than if it were a smaller print. And it also made for a quicker project. There are 12 blocks that make up this top. I did not use some of the larger scale prints because I did not want to lose the beautiful picture. I am sure they will be made into something else, (possibly a pillowcase). But now that I am looking at it, I am thinking about trading the top right block with the bottom right block to even the colors out a little more. Hmm!!
I love this grey dot that I am going to use for the backing. I hope to have it finished soon but with the holidays so close, I am not really going to try to finish before Christmas.
Now to get into full swing of Christmas sewing. I bought some cute new fabric and I am excited to get sewing with that. I would love to hear what you are sewing or making right now, Christmas related or not!!
Have a great week and I LOVE this time of the year!!
