Remember when I was so excited over this Kona Prussian Blue fabric, and decided to pair it up with a mustard solid and a print and make a quilt?

I can’t blame you if you’ve forgotten, it’s been a while since I worked on it. So long, in fact that I almost forgot about it!

But it’s back and I’ve been working on it for the past few days. Here’s the finished flimsy:

Oomph - Finished Quilt Top

I decided to use my pattern Oomph and make the lap size using these bold colors. (You can see the red/black/white version here and read more about the quilting.)

I wanted to make a quilt with that wonderful blue. Adding a mustard-y color to it seemed like a good choice, and I really like the V & Co print with the two solids. But now when I look at this top all I see are the school colors for WVU. That’s not a bad thing, just not what I was going for! However, hubby loves it and it has received such positive response on social media I’ve decided to just go with it.

Yep, I had a Mountaineer themed quilt in mind all along…. 🙂

Yesterday I spent a good amount of time quilting it. I am using Superior’s Mono-Poly thread on the top and it is just blending right in. I have all the ditch stitching finished, and have started on the solid yellow sections with some matchstick stitching.

But now it has to go on the back burner for a few days. A customer called and asked for a rush quilting job on an auction quilt for her 1958 high school reunion. So that will have my attention for the next couple of days.

I am so happy to be working on the blue/mustard quilt again, and I am still crushing on that blue. I think I just need to buy it by the bolt!

Now it’s your turn to share your crush! What are you working on that has you excited to be sewing this week?
