Finished........

I cut the binding and sewed it onto the Laurel Burch baby quilt yesterday.  It ended up 39" x 52".

Did you know C&T is publishing a Laurel Burch coloring book?  You can pre-order here.  In the 1970s there were adult coloring books and my daughter and I colored in them.  This is a revival of sorts with many different coloring books available.The library in my town has a coloring book night where you can come in and relax and color. 

The back is a Laurel Burch flannel with monkeys.



















Another side project I'm working on is to cut 2.5" squares from most of my Kaffe collection.  These piles are just from Box #1 which has numbers 1-30 of his fabric.  He is up in the 150s now so I have a long way to go.  I'm cutting 5.5" strips to cut with my die cutter.  I'm planning a couple different quilts that will use the squares and I need a big variety.

The baby quilt is so fun and playful.
All the cutting is a formidable task....so glad you have a cutter to get thru that amazing stack of fabric. Definitely looking forward to seeing what you are doing :)

Always enjoy seeing your color sense in a project. Can't wait to see what you and Kaffe come up with!

That backing is great - I zoomed in to see what the animals were - looked like they were monkeying around :)
We had snow this morning but the South stayed clear - I've seen snow later than this in the past but I hope not this Easter as I'm away for 3 days :p

Now you have me wondering what you're going to sew with all the luscious KF fabrics. Amazing that you have the collection of all his fabrics.

I love the colors in this quilt. They are so bright and vibrant. Wow, you are taking on a big task cutting so many 5.5 strips and then 2.5 squares.

Would love to see the the lucky baby that gets to play on this quilt for the first time. What a treat for whoever receives this beauty.

Enjoyed going backwards and catching up with all your earlier posts. . . AccuQuilt studio cutter is fascinating to me I had never seen one before.... And they selected a good quilt for March's calendar girl. You have a talented circle of friends.

Wanted to tell you, a friend from Somonauk sent the article about my husband's aunt and uncle's long marriage. That was in the Valley News paper a few weeks ago. On the back was your photo of your up coming program. I was so happy to see you and must say, you looked great !

Ooooh, I like the sound of that new project. I am drawn to the 2 1/2 inch squares, so I'll for sure be watching to see what you do with them!
