This week it’s scenes from Murano. Murano was beautiful and wonderfully devoid of turists. It is full of window boxes, colorful shutters, and blown glass in strange places
Another project I have yet to share with you! These fabrics were selected by a friend for another baby quilt. A strip quilt this time. I’m not going to lie, it turned out super cute.

I’ve been delinquent in sharing my projects with you. I made this quilt for some friends in Dayton who just welcomed a little girl into their family. I’ve been wanting to try a Plus One quilt for a while now. I think this is the quilt that made me finally decided to make one. Our friends are a strictly University of Cincinnati family and so it was a red, black, and gray quilt for them.
True to form, I made a grid using AutoCAD and then used Photoshop to which fabric to buy. When the fabric arrived, I ended up swapping out a few fabrics in an effort to make the selections look more like a baby quilt. I’m not sure if I succeeded but I think the end result turned out nicely.
As an added bonus, I appliqued a C-paw on the back which I then quilted around to bring the design to the front.
Believe it or not, I started this quilt last December but it was another 4 months before I finished it and another 2 months before I’m managing to share it will you. I’ll try to be a little more on top of it next time.
