I loved reading my moms Nancy Drew books when I was younger. When Moda came out with the line inspired by Nancy Drew, I had to have it and I knew I had to make a wall hanging for my office.
I chose to use one of the book panels and border it with a white print and then the book prints around that. When I quilted it, it became wonky, but I still love it. I still have some scraps and 5 more book covers to do something with.
You can really see the wonkiness on the back. At the beginning it was straight, I promise.
I am so into the toile print from inside the covers of the books. I should get more if I can find it.
Yesterday I saw a cute baby quilt on V and Co. website. I thought it would be a perfect compliment to my hexie table runner. I wanted something to compliment the randomness and I wanted to see if I could be random.
For those of us that plan, being random can be scary and we push against it hard.
I created two different kinds of 9 patch blocks out of 3.5 inch squares. One block was 9 printed fabrics pieced together and the second block is a simple white star block.
All together it turned out wonderful.
And see how well it works with the other table runner. They will both be used to cover the dressers in my bedroom.
