WiP - Ooh la la

I'm keeping up with my list - 10 things this summer. I finished Diamond Tread quilt. For more pics check out my previous post.
#1 Diamond Tread - DONE
I totally changed my mind on the #3 - crib size quilt for my girl. I wanted to use the already made circles and make bubble quilt as planned year ago but it's not happening. I'll make some cushions instead. I decided to challenge myself a bit with the quilt. It's nothing difficult just my personal challenge which means do something you wouldn't usually do. In my case it means random placement and squares. Mostly I'm not really keen on the classic square look especially if it's scrappy and random. I couldn't do scrappy vomit that would be way too much so I picked the rest of Ooh la la charm pack and added some dotty fabrics from my stash. There is one more challenge in the quilting plan but I'm not gonna tell you. Just in case it won't work out, lol. Straight lines quilting is my back up plan. So we'll see. The crucial part is usually the basting and I already passed that one. Yippee.

    4. Thank you. I didn't even know I had word verification on. I find it so annoying on other blogs, so I'll be glad to get rid of it from mine. Thanks again.
