Today's quilt in my quilt-a-day blogging challenge is a leftovers quilt!
This quilt is the smallest of the three I made, but it's a great size for a crib quilt or playmat (about 40" square).

I took a little hiatus from my Quilt a Day blogging challenge.
The whale border print is getting pretty hard to find -- it's a good thing I stocked up last time I came across it!

This month, I'm challenging myself to blog about a new or recent finish every day.
I'm working on a similar quilt in Heather Bailey scraps, so I can't wait to share that one when it's finished!

I was running a bit low on backing fabric, so I pieced a strip of leftover fabrics and centered it on the back. I really like the way it breaks up the main backing print at bit!
More custom orders await, but the rest are smaller, thank goodness!

The pattern for this quilt is coming soon!

This month, I've challenged myself to blog about a new or recent finish every day!
Today's quilt is a special gift for a friend's new grandson, using my Bricklayer pattern. The working theme was blue, green, grey, white, and animals.
I put together a selection of animal prints, and the ones chosen by the new mom went beautifully together, so all I had to do was add in a few coordinates.
I am loving the fabric combinations, so I look forward to making another quilt with the leftovers from this project!

This one is already on its way to a new owner!

This month, I'm challenging myself to blog about a new or recent finish every single day.

Each month, we were given steps and instructions to complete, without knowing what the final product would look like. I chose some fabrics from Bonnie and Camille's "Scrumptious" collection for my project.
The finished quilt is definitely a little different than what I usually make -- I'm used to having much more fabric variety, and I'm not sure my lights and mediums had enough contrast to show off the design. However, it was an enjoyable experience, and I look forward to seeing everyone else reveal their projects at tomorrow's guild meeting. It is always a surprise to see how the pattern looks in different fabric combos!

In the past year, I've issued myself two blogging/quilting challenges. In June 2013, I challenged myself to quilt a stack of 19 flimsies in 20 days (you can read about that challenge here, and see the finished stack of quilts here). In December 2013, I blogged about a recent finish every day in my "Twenty-Five Days of Quilts" series.
Well, it's time for another blogging challenge (seems to be a six-month cycle!), so this month, I'll be blogging about a recent or new finish every day. I have a lot of recently finished custom orders, and a stack of unquilted tops, so I should have plenty to show and tell over the next month!
I'm a big Joel Dewberry fan, so when a customer recently requested a twin size version of a Modern Meadow baby quilt in my store, I was happy to oblige!
I'm loving the simplicity of the half square triangle design and how the white solid lets these beautiful prints shine!
Most of the prints are from the Modern Meadow collection, but there are a couple of other Dewberry fabrics in the mix as well.
Hopefully, it will look great on its new owner's bed!
