Well it's official up here in Canada, summer is on the way out, and fall is upon us. Last Saturday marked the very first day of fall, with the autumnal solstice - sorry is the science nerd in me showing?
There is nothing quite like cool nights, crisp air, and turning leaves to makes this city girl domesticated. As it turns out this is an especially useful time for me to be motivated, since I'll be making a road trip to my home town in less than a month.
In the midst of visiting lots of friends and family back home, I'll also be visiting a few new babies. One of my sweetest highschool friends recently had her second baby boy and I thought this was a perfect time to sew up a quilt using my Tula Pink Birds and Bees charm packs.
I love how Tula's lines always incorporate a wide range of colours stories, and I couldn't help but be drawn to the blues, greens, mustards, and rich purples in the B&B prints for this baby boy quilt.
Along with the bold colour scheme, I especially love each of the print designs in this line, and wanted to make sure I was able to show them off adequately. I decided to maximize the prints by using Cluck Cluck Sew's Inside Out quilt pattern.
This is the first Cluck Cluck Sew pattern that I have sewn and I was extremely impressed with how well written it was. Not only were the directions simple, but I was surprised by how quickly this quilt top came together. Before I had even finished this quilt top I went online and ordered a copy of their Pow-Wow quilt pattern.
Yesterday I used the back of my new design wall to spray and pin baste this quilt, and I was thrilled with how useful it was. You might remember back in my design wall reveal that my husband cleaverly added white laminate to the back of both design boards so I could use them to baste on. Not only did the pins slide in smoothly, but my hardwood floors didn't suffer a single scratch!
I'm planning to quilt this puppy up in the next few days and will be back friday to show you the finished quilt.
