Drunk Practice

I just made a bunch of fabric squares and some slipcovers for Robert Kaufman, and (BEST perk ever) I got to keep all the scraps... I'm also supposed to make a baby-sized Drunkards Path quilt top this weekend, and I decided I needed to practice. Luckily, now I have lots of scraps of cute fabric... I used my Olfa rotary circle cutter to cut the pieces (I hate templates), and I finally figured out my Curve Master presser foot (purchased at the 2008 or 9 LBIQF, ignored ever since), and made this little quilt top tonight:

 

Isn't it pretty!?!?!? It's all organic (not-yet-released) fabrics, from awesome designers Betz White and Laurie Wisbrun, and then the white border is organic Kona... I'm loving all the new organic fabrics, in such amazing, modern, vibrant prints!

I'm not sure who this is for... I think it's pretty gender neutral, right? I mean, it's all blues and greens (ok, there's a smattering of magenta, but not much), but then it's dots and flowers and lambs... so hopefully it can go either way? I have a friend who's preggers with #2, so I'm gonna try to finish it up asap and mail it off as an early welcome to the new baby...

Oh, and I'm pretty happy with the way my blocks came out! Yay for the Curve Master! Now I just need to figure out the quilting! Oh, and make that whole other drunkards path (mine was only 28 curved blocks, but I have to make 140 for this "baby" quilt)...

But while we're on the subject of using up my RK organic scraps, here's a sneak peak of how I used up some of the leftover Lorax prints:

(can you tell I have lots of skinny strips of white leftover?)
