Slow week so far

I don't have any quilts on the frame this week so I loaded some practice fabric and doodled.  I tried out a few new motifs that I might use in my next quilt.   

The picture above is going to be the border on a finished top I have.   I have quilt from the Quilty Fun sewalong by Lori Holt all done and ready to be quilted.   Still floating ideas around for what I want to do in the center.

I am also working on a couple of matching baby quilts.   I got the nine patches all done.   They will alternate with white blocks.   This was a picture of the layout I was going to use.   However when I was sewing them together I realized I didn't do the best job of spreading the patterns around too.   I focused too much on the colors.  That right hand side reads mostly as solids and the left is mostly patterned.   Luckily I noticed pretty early and I have it all rearranged.

I also got in a few fabrics to add to my collection for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt that is starting this month.  I was missing some of the corals and browns.  I should be good to go now.  I can't wait!
