More UFOs!

Now, what I didn't tell you about when I posted about all my UFOs the other day, I've also started more projects - of course, duh!

I made a girly floating coins baby quilt.



I was inspired by some reproduction fabrics available at the quilt store I mentioned that I rarely get to - they're closed on weekends and 4 hours away, so I totally splurged on my last visit.
A couple of the fabrics are in this picture, and I added some other pale baby prints from various fat quarters and eights I've picked up here and there.


And, while I never continued the 3-stars-on-green-background babyquilt yet - I just couldn't make up my mind at the time - I used the green squares with some of the red fabric from the character quilt and I'm making a delicious round red apple on green background instead. I'm envisioning a stem and leaf appliqueed on the top of the apple, as well as a fat round curvy worm. Here's a sneak preview of the apple - I love how vivid the colour contrast is!

I've been wanting to do a coin quilt and I've never seen one not done with white sashing. I love the maroon color. The apple quilt looks great so far. Love the red and green together. Can't wait to see it done.

Great quilts!! I love the idea of a worm. I did that when my 8yo niece asked for an apple quilt. She named the worm Bob after my hubby LOL.

I love the burgunday colour. It really makes the coins stand out.

I can't wait to see the worm!

Love the Chinese coin! Awesome. I think you picked a great solid color for it. That green and orange really pops!
