October 2015 Book of the Month

Drum roll please--the October Book of the Month honor goes to Sew a Modern Home by Melissa Lunden!



A book with a wide variety of projects, it was the two baby quilt patterns that attracted me. Being that hubby told me before we left for Germany that he needs two baby boy quilts, the pressure is on. Both patterns look to be fairly quick and easy, and a hunt through my stash uncovered a print and some ricrac I've been wanting to use. The first pattern, Naptime,



uses large prints. I've chosen this cute fish print, along with blue dots, and a lively green for sashing. Fish on this print are 2-4 inches in size, so I think it should work.



The other pattern is Playtime,


which uses a stripe and some ribbon. I have a pretty blue stripe left over from a t-shirt quilt back, and bright yellow ricrac. 



This one should be fun!

Tomorrow I'll start cutting and sewing, as the day is free to spend in the studio. Can't wait!

Happy Quilting!

  1. There's always energy at the beginning of a project. Yours looks to be a lot of fun to put together.
