Ice Cream Soda Quilt - Month 2

Another month, another set of eight Ice Cream Soda Quilt blossoms. And I am still absolutely loving this project! And exciting news for those of you who may have missed the sign ups back in February - Jodi has announced that she'll be opening up another round of sign ups in May, so if you're keen to join in on the fun, be sure to follow her over on Instagram. 

I'm finding it really helpful to take pictures of all these blossoms together every so often, to get a grip on what colours I'm lacking and to check that it is going to work overall. I love the fact that it is going to be super scrappy and look really unplanned, even though I'm carefully selecting and fussy cutting all the fabrics for each blossom. I need to concentrate on using more pinks, reds and purples this month, especially in the outer rings, to try to make it a bit more balanced. 


Like last month, I'm still using lots of my favorite designers - Lizzy House, Tula Pink, Heather Ross and Anna Maria Horner are all making frequent appearances.







One of my favorite finds for this project has been Heather Bailey's True Colours collection. I bought a bundle of these from the Fat Quarter Shop (in one of their flash sales, so it was something like 50% off - bargain!), and they are so perfect for fussy cutting. The centre of this blossom (one of my personal favorites) features one of these prints in the centre. I find sometimes geometric prints are difficult to fussy cut, as they aren't always symmetrical. Not a problem with these, and I can see myself using them in lots of my blossoms.


No colour is being ignored for this quilt - I'm even including brown (a totally underrated colour in my opinion!) I am SO in love with these hedgehogs wandering around the edge of this blossom!



I wasn't sure about the centre of this one initially (deliberately cut so that the arrows are offset from each other), but it's really grown on me and I have decided I love it.



I haven't forgotten about my promises of some English Paper Piecing tutorials either - between my middle child turning 10, Easter, school holidays, some secret sewing (plus work and life in general) I just haven't had time. But once school is back I plan to get them sorted!

I have some other exciting news too. I've been practicing like mad quilting pantographs on a long arm at one of my local quilt shops, ready to offer customer quilting. So I'm extremely excited to announce that I'm now available to do edge to edge quilting for customers! I'll share more details about that really soon!!

Love your fussy cuts, this is just really a beauty!!

Farm Quilter said...

The fabrics your chose, the awesome fussy-cutting job you did, just absolutely make these blocks look incredible!!! I can't wait to see the final creation!

KaHolly said...

What fun blocks!

Diana @ Red Delicious Life said...

I can't believe all the fussy-cutting you've had to do with all of these. They are amazing! I love the look of EPP, but don't have the patience to do it myself. I can't wait to see your finished project.

Karen said...

Wait! What? You expect us to believe that you have a life outside of quilting?? (No explanations necessary--I am constantly amazed by all that you get done--and NOW custom quilting!!) Your fussy cutting is stunning. I have spent a lot of time just wandering up and down your posts with a big smile on my face studying all the charming little vignettes. And that you never chop some sweet print's head off is just amazing. Looking forward to the next reveal :)

Kathy@KayakQuilting said...

Wow! Those are just beautiful! I love all the fussy cutting and pattern matching is so perfect!!

Janice Holton said...

I have a lot of admiration for anyone with the patience to make these beautiful blocks line up so perfectly. That's incredible!

A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.

I can't praise Programming Homework
Help
services enough, except for the previous order. It wasn't completed and sent in time. There were also a lot of mistakes and a few plagiarism issues, too, but I'm glad they came in and resolved the issue quite fast. Please make an effort to match experts with the right orders. The previous Python Homework Help must have been an amateur, though I appreciate his food knowledge. He only needs some experience to be perfect.

zoeyriley890 said...

My lecturer gave us an assignment almost at the end of the semester when we were supposed to be preparing for our examinations. I had to choose between studying for the exams and completing the assignment and going to the exams unprepared. So I paid for Statistics Homework Help on statisticshomeworkhelper.com. Then, I used the same Statistics Assignment Help expert's services for revising. After my results, I can confirm that working with the expert was a win-win. His assignment results were perfect, and I also scored most of the things he taught me right in the exams.

aria315addison said...

I got the best Programming Assignment Help services from their experts, who showed the highest level of expertise and professionalism. Handling my project faster than expected was the best thing they could do to it, especially given that I also wanted some revision time with the paper and solutions. I'm glad I was able to understand a few more C concepts from the properly-arranged solutions. Cheers to the C Homework Help tutor!

aria315addison said...

I often use statistics Homework HelpS because they never fail. However, statisticshomeworkhelper.com isn't consistent with their prices. I gave up trying to find a model that could help me predict their prices. I think there should be a hint about their pricing criteria to help students have adequate preparation before submitting their assignments for help. Meanwhile, apart from the unpredictable price, I love everything else about the platform's Statistics Assignment Help.

aria315addison said...

I want to thank you for the extra effort put to ensure that I scored the best grade in my Matlab Assignment Help. I've established trust now, and I'll keep coming back to get more projects to be completed by their senior Matlab Homework Help experts. I'll share their good gospel with my friends, too. Thanks for the top mark.

aria315addison said...

Hi. Thanks a bunch for giving me grades that I never expected from economicshomeworkhelper.com. I only used the organization's Economics Assignment Help out of desperation, but it helped me discover that there is likely no better online service like it. I highly recommend the platform and this Economics Homework Help provider (the poster). He's such a fast and professional economist.

Mia Gabriella said...

How can I be sure that they will complete my assignment on time? I have fallen into the hands of fakeEconomics assignment help experts so many times. I am now looking for a genuineEconomics homework help expert who is ready to partner with me for the next 2 years. I would appreciate it if you send me their samples to see the quality of your work

Mia Gabriella said...

Looking for a master’s levelMatlab homework help solver. I am starting my image processing project but I don’t have time for it. I want aMatlab assignment help expert who will work on it from start to finish. Our professors like it worked step by step so that they can check and return comments for corrections. The tutor I want will be receiving the comments, correcting them, and then returning them to the professor. Once they are corrected and given a go-ahead to continue the tutor will then go ahead to the next chapter until the project is completed. Let me know whether they have someone who can do that.

Mia Gabriella said...

Statistics became harder than I thought before I joined the university. To make it worse, my lecturer wasn't the type of person that explains concepts deeply. So it was everyone for himself. Then I started the hunt for where I could getStatistics Homework Help online and bumped into statisticshomeworkhelper.com. I considered myself lucky to meet this trustworthy expert at my first attempt. He's a one-of-a-kindR Homework Help specialist.

Oakley Amelia said...

The Programming Homework Help service was worth more than every penny I paid for it. Thanks a bunch for giving me their time and dedication. I loved every bit of the experience I had with one of the Java Homework Help experts, who turned out to be very interactive and professional in the way she handled me and my assignment. The lady was experienced and polite. Thanks, too, for the affordable prices and easy payment process. I'll come again for more.

Oakley Amelia said...

This Statistics Assignment Help provider has been completing my assignments and helping me understand them at the same time. That is, as soon as he submits the assignment's solutions, he commits himself to explain each of them to me on a video call. I always use this service to achieve perfect presentations and understand more concepts for future use in the examinations. Besides, the Statistics Homework Help specialist is a good advisor. He's generous with sharing his experience with students.

Oakley Amelia said...

Getting the perfectMatlab homework help solver has always been a challenge because very few Matlab assignments help experts understand all the concepts of Matlab. However, for the time they have been tackling my communications system assignment, they have given me new hope because they may not have one person working on all Matlab topics but they have different tutors in one pool. That is the main reason why I am so comfortable working with them.

Oakley Amelia said...

I am completely tired. I have just arrived from work only to realize that my economics assignment is due tomorrow. I am not in a position to complete it tonight, and therefore, I am requesting your Economics assignment help. I believe with theEconomics homework help experience, they will help me get better grades. I am proceeding to submit the assignment on your website.
