Fabric shopping

No, the afghan still is not quite done—hopefully next week I can share a finished project!

But a new cousin means a new project! Since I am still working on one baby aghan, I have decided to go with a quilt for the next project.

And since I had some time today, I decided today was the perfect day to head to Sew Modern.

The plan is to make a disappearing 9-patch. The fabrics I left with:
Boys Toys Sky (Robert Kaufman)--backing (far right) and focus fabric (far left)
Pearl Bracelets (Lizzie House) in dark gray
Noteworthy (Sweetwater for Moda) in a brownish gray
Simply Color (V and Co for Moda) in gray and green--these are ombres, so I get more options!
Chevron (Riley Blake) in green and blue--big dots, another ombre!
Clown Stripe (Michael Miller) in green and light blue
Kona Glacier (the dark turquoise)--possibly the binding, but I may add borders

So, these need to get washed an pressed and I need to chose my block size for the quilt. Plenty of time to get that afghan finished....

  1. Love the bundle you picked up there! Can't wait to see the finished product. Disappearing 9patch
    is a fun quilt to make! Have fun!

  2. Such a lucky baby - the quilt will be adorable. I love the fabric you have chosen. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and taking the time to comment it's so lovely to have new visitors x

  3. Can't wait to see how your quilt turns out. Making quilts for boys is always such a challenge.

  4. LOVE the fabric! It is much harder to find cute boy stuff than girl stuff. I made a disappearing nine patch last year and loved how fast and easy it was. I also have an afghan that seems never ending.

  5. Your fabric look perfect for a baby quilt. Your afghan is gorgeous!
