T-Shirt Quilt in Riley Blake Yellow Chevron

I finished this quilt for Alana several weeks ago.  This is the first time I've used Riley Blake chevron.  The quilt is so much cooler in person.  I love how the kona cotton cardinal matched the shirt in the center of the second row.  Alana wanted yellow for the backing. I didn't have a sample of the yellow chevron fabric so I guessed at which yellow would match.  I first picked canary but when the fabrics arrived - it was too bright!  Now that I had the yellow chevron in person...I was able to use my Robert Kaufman color chart & the perfect match is 'CORN'!!!  It took me a little longer to get the quilt but done Alana was happy with the quilt and that made me happy!

1st finish for 2014 - ARMY Quilt

This is my first finish for 2014.  I actually finished this quilt several weeks ago but I wanted to make sure that Amber had the chance to see it first before I did a post.  She picked fabrics from the Stonehenge line by Linda Ludovico & Deborah Edwards for Northcott.  The fabric she picked was perfect!

Irene - Month 2

This is the 2nd month for the sew-along and we just had to make another 5 blocks.  Since I had the time, I went ahead and made a few more blocks.  It's not to late to join in this sew-along.  If you click on the picture to the right it will take you to Terry's blog & you can see what the other ladies are doing.  The sun is shining today...YAY!  Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

1st 5 blocks done.

I've been sick the last 5-7 days.  Today is the first day I feel normal.  Thank goodness because the AFC & NFC Championship football games are today.  Since I'm here - GO BRONCOS!  GO SEAHAWKS!  While I was sick I was not able to do any sewing.  So I had to put Amber's quilt on hold.  But last night, even though I was still a little out of it, I went ahead and whipped up my 5 blocks.  I think I'm going to like the yellow.  I hope everyone is enjoying this sew-along.  I love the nice, slow pace!  If you'd like to check it out, just click on the Goodnight Irene picture on the right side.  Have a great week!

EDIT AFTER POSTING...maybe I should have waited to feel better before sewing?  Instead of an 'X' block, I sewed 'O'!  I'll fix them later.
