Sunday Stash: The Shades of Cyan

Are you confused when people talk about aqua, teal, jade, turquoise, topaz or cyan?? This is one of my favorite color ranges at the moment. Cyan is actually one of three of the secondary colors in the RGB color models. All these colors can be considered a tint or shade of Cyan. I thought the shades were well represented in this wikipedia page.

I decided to take a pull of my Kona Solids and my prints to show you all, as a base.

Finish it up Friday{05.07.2013}: Baby Quilt top

First off, it’s my sister’s birthday today. Happy Birthday Sis.

The other big news today is that I finished my first baby quilt top (that now makes 1 x mini quilt, and 1 x twin quilt top)…yippee !!!

Simply Stars
I love V and Co. “Simply” charm packs. They are so bright and colorful. The designs are very geometric but still whimsical, perfect for a baby quilt. The other great thing about this quilt, is it came together really quickly. Each star block took me about 30 minutes, and each 9 block took about 15 minutes. I love that it was so quick and easy. 


After much practice, I think I finally have the knack for matching square blocks. I am very proud how aligned everything is. I was able to take some quick photos this afternoon which is very lucky as we have had thunderstorms/rain every afternoon for the last two weeks. Today is perfect weather!!!


Anyway that’s it, here are some of the details

Another Progress report on Four Seasons in One Day quilt

This weekend was very productive – The back is now finished for the four seasons quilt and I have pinned all the layers together ready for quilting. The photo’s are not great due to all the shadows from the trees (obviously need a different time of day), but you will get the idea.

The back is Kona yellow solid (on the top)–> 1/2 chevron stripe of left over Notting Hill (Joel Dewberry) pieces –> and from Joann’s a aqua chevron fabric (on the bottom)


The top:


Now, onto the quilting and binding. The binding will be red. I will post one more time when it is all finished :-).Thanks for following my quilt journey.
