Oh Boy!

The end of the long weekend is fast approaching (we celebrated the Queen's Birthday today), and it has been very relaxing without the usual weekend sporting commitments.  This has meant some extra time for sewing and I've chosen a simple squares quilt project, with fabrics that entail much detail.  Cuteness galore!


As soon as I saw the Monaluna Circa 50 fabric collection by Birch Fabrics, I knew that this fabric was just waiting for me to make a quilt for a little boy.  From experience I know that boys just love "I Spy" quilts, and the Circa 50 fabrics are teeming with all those things that little boys just love; from rockets and moons, to squirrels and mushrooms.


I've teamed up the Circa 50 fabrics with the Cloud9 - Beyond the Sea fabric collection.  Both are wonderful quality organic fabrics, and I think they really compliment each other.  After wrangling with the super lightweight voile fabrics last week, these fabrics were a breeze to sew with.

Backing, basting and quilting still to come.  Happy sewing.

  1. Those two lines look amazing together Rita! I have the Cloud 9 garden line sitting right here on my cutting table trying to decide what to do with it.
