Flower Valley Quilt and Nicey Jane Dress
Last night, I started cutting some squares for this simple quilt that I drew up on graph paper. I'm using a combination of all the Hope Valley fabrics and a few others that have in my stash.
The fabrics are cut into 4" squares.
Here's what it looks like so far, laid out on the floor. I'm thinking that the dark color in the center of the orange flowers is going to have to get replaced. It just looks too dark and I really don't want it to stand out so much. (Kona Plum, Sage, Moss and Snow are the other solid fabric colors)
So, it looks like I'll have to wait to start sewing this one together (that's ok, I think I'll cut some more squares to make it larger). I've also started on a queen sized string quilt... 23 of the 90 blocks are made! I'll try to show some pictures of how that one is coming together later this week.
This little dress is for my other niece. Again, it's from the Claire pattern (size 4) by Sandi Henderson and made with Nicey Jane fabrics.
It will be so fun to see her running around in it this summer!
