I did it!
I've been thinking about opening an Etsy shop for about a year now. Now, I finally did it!
I have two ready made items in the shop, as well as an option for a custom made quilt. For now, I just have baby quilts, but we'll see later. Check it out, pass on the information if you know anyone looking for a quilt.
One of my quilts for sale is the butterfly quilt I posted earlier. I decided the white background was part of what was bothering me, so I used a light purple batik and a full piece rather than strips. Then, I used the butterfly batik around the outside. Much better. I still used some of the bright pink for the back, along with a strip of purple and more of the butterfly batik. I like a pieced back!
After finishing the butterfly, I wanted to do something completely different. I decided polka dots were in order. I wanted to make a pretty funky quilt. I started with wonky log cabins of a couple of different sizes. I had a great time figuring out how to fit all of them together. I added strips in between blocks to make things fit together. The back is just orange with white polka dots. The binding is all scraps from the front. I am really happy with how it turned out, its so bright and sunny.
