Flax Fields & Baby Quilt WIP

WOW, thank you everybody for leaving such nice comments on The Four Seasons finish, you are all so great :D I am thrilled to be done with it.

I decided to start a smaller project called Flax Fields by Carriage House Samplings. I used the recommended DMC floss for this. It does call to use silk threads, but I about passed out at how much those cost, and for this small of a project I couldn't justify it LOL! So here is my progress so far...
And I started a baby quilt for my friend Lori. I made so many of these blocks, thinking it would be just enough, well it turned out to be too many, so I am making two of these now :D The blue and white fabric is from stash the yellow and green I bought for it. I'm going to sew a 2" border all of the way around and then tie it to finish it. I like the colors of it, it reminds me of a beach for some reason.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Thanks for taking the time to stop by :D

Love your flax fields! I do a lot of projects in DMC, silk can be very expensive.

A great start on Flax Fields. I don't blame you for using DMC, it's much more affordable than silk. I often think about using silk until I work out the cost then there's no contest, it's DMC every time.

Four Seasons looks fabulous!

Nice job on the baby quilt. I totally forgot to take a picture of my son's college quilt before handing it off to the quilter. Will post a picture once complete!

Pretty quilt! It does look like the beach - beach grass, sand, water! Love Flax Fields - good idea to do it in DMC!
