A Friday Finish!

 First up, thanks for the Melon Fabric suggestions.  I am spending some time tonight at the LQS, so I will see what they've got in stock before I head online.  Also, a question: If you were going to bid on a 12" x 12" mini quilt - what would you be looking for?  Miniature piecing?  Applique? Art? Flowers? Animals?  Beading?  So far I have no direction on this at all - really need some inspiration.
 The finish!  This cute little baby quilt.  Finishing at 34" square.  The center fabrics are 'sips of summer' from  Connecting Threads from forever ago that I got as a door prize from my quilt guild.   In fact these are the left overs from This Quilt.  The green, probably Joann's.  The orange polka dot is Hobby Lobby, and I don't know where the blue came from.  But, it did all come from the stash, as did the pieced batting.  I just love using up batting pieces.
 A close up of the quilting and the inspiration for the quilting.
This will go on a small pile of baby quilts I am amassing for the various expectant moms that I know.

I am also pretty much ready for my class tomorrow AM.  Tonight is shopping, eating and meeting the teachers.  I asked Mr. Riley and E if I should teach the sample with pears, or robots.  They were both adamant about pears.  It will be one bright quilt when all is said and done!

Rachel, I have done the crayon challenge for years and I try to always make my block fantastic. Something that will catch the eye. I never wanr my piece to be the only one without a bid, hahaha. I usually use a technique I have been wanting to try and this year is no exception. With my color being gray I've gotta make it pop!
