More Teacher Gifts And Nordika Progress

I don't have a lot to share this week, I forgot about the other set of teacher gifts I finished. This is for my grand daughter's teacher from last year. God bless her for her wonderful work with the children! She was a huge help for my little Abie, who has some health things that can make school a bit tough for her sometimes. We could not have asked for a better kindergarten teacher for her!
Color Me Retro by Jeni Baker for Art Gallery is such a bright and fun line. I love it for bags and pouch type stuff! Think I need to get some more before it's all gone :)

I haven't gotten a lot accomplished on my Nordika quilt yet, just a few rows.

It's so hard to see in pictures but the solid is Northcott Seafoam green, it's so pretty with this fabric line (also by Jeni Baker for Art Gallery for anyone that doesn't know)! I'm really wondering how I will ever get a good shot to do the colors in this quilt justice. I fiddled around for so long with different layouts. I had it all done and everything scattered everywhere looked way too busy. I decided to put just 2 together in each section, and that toned it down quite a bit. I'm happy with the final layout. It will go together fast, being that it is large half square triangles. I'm back to trying to do a zillion things at once, and when I do this...I get nothing done it seems!
What are you working on this week?

  6. The seafoam green is AWESOME - I am a fan of colour (esp THAT colour!!!). And is that a chapstick/lipgloss holder - I think I might need that pattern!!! So cute.
