Gray and Coral patchwork

I made this custom quilt for a lady who painted her nursery in gray with a coral/gray chevron on one wall.  It looks really cool.  So, stuck with mainly gray patches but wanted to put a coral square in most of the rows.  I'm happy with this one, I think it's pretty cute-and I broke from my routine and used medium gray from Kona instead of my usual Ash. 

I opted for a narrow white border around the patchwork before the medium gray border-I think it needed that little bit of white in there to break up the grey.  Anyhow, this will be off to it's new owner soon-I hope her little girls enjoys it!  
Linking up to The Needle and Thread Network today and Finish it up Fridays at Crazy Mom Quilts.

A nautical blankie

I had an order for a nautical themed blanket.  I tried to find the aqua and red whales/sailboats that I had used before, but sadly, my local quilt shop were sold out.  But, I did find these cute whales and anchors and just took the blanket in a different color scheme.  I've read that navy and darker shades of blue are becoming more popular, and I have to say, I'm liking the darker shades after using aqua and teal for so long.

 Anyhow, a week ago, we brought home a new puppy named Ben and I took him for a walk around the neighborhood today-he did so well on his leash.  But that explains the lack of sewing projects around here!
