To celebrate 15 years in business, I’m making a quilt ~ and setting aside the 15th day of each month to work on the 15th Anniversary Whimzie Quiltz BOM commemorative project.
Another month, another block-of-the-month! August’s design ~ these classic orange scissors ~ was the most detailed and most difficult to date.
Although I’m happy with how they turned out, overall, things are starting to get a bit hairy with this quilt. As I’ve mentioned, I’m changing up a few things from the original Sewology pattern, like adding my company name and logo. I’m also doing a scrappy gray background instead of the recommended single fabric. Finding gray fabrics that coordinate is so much harder than I expected!
Still, while it would be nice to not have to worry if I’m going to have the right shade of backgrounds or if I’m even going to have enough(!), I really wanted to do this as a scrappy quilt because it’s been something of a signature of mine these past 15 years. Fortunately, the San Diego Quilt Show is later this month and I’m hoping to find some grays that work at one or two of the vendors there. Keep your fingers crossed I’ll have something fitting to share in September!
I really hope you’re enjoying taking the 15th Anniversary Whimzie Quilt journey with me. And remember, there’s still plenty of days each month when I can be working on a super special quilt for you, too! What do you want to celebrate in 2019?
