You may remember that I have been looking for the perfect fabric for my Neptune baby quilt. I wasn't feeling the Gray or White even though the Gray won out on the poll I posted.
Teal and Coral were suggested. I ordered Everglade but that wasn't striking me either (it will however look really good with Prince Charming so I know it won't be wasted).
So then I ordered Kona Flesh, but it is definitely too pinky for me. Not enough of the coral color.
So that was my number one job at the quilt shop, to find fabric for this quilt. Anna helped me find a great fabric, the grungy prints from Basic Grey for Moda. There is definitely some perks to shopping for fabrics in person and with friends!
It's hard to photograph well, but I think it's going to be great with those fabrics.
I didn't get to work on that quilt friday night. I spent my night doing my mock up block for the 4x6 bee. I had this block picked out for the summer session that never happened. Since I was lucky enough to get into the paper piecing group again, I tested my block in my colors. It's pretty time consuming, but I love it and think it will be a great block for my bee.
And this next one is kind of random, but I don't have enough to do a full Pinterest report and we did talk about it at the sewing night (haha!). I had a major Pinterest fail last week. Have you seen this pin about hemming jeans?
I was excited to try this and did two pairs of my jeans. It was super quick and I was thrilled. Until I washed them. These were good Gap jeans (though a few years old). They came out like this....
