Eggplant Gherkin

Time has been on my side today,  I was able to finish putting the borders of my pickle quilt. I'm love it's cute size! What I'll do with it who knows but I'm happy to add it to my collection. I may even make another some day, just at my own slow snail pace. 
Not only did I finish the little gherkin, I just finished adding all the rows to the HST purple moon quilt. Glad to have this off the back of my chair! That chair was getting cramped with a pile of half finished quilts and a cat. 
And remember my distraction at the quilt class? I just couldn't resist and had to make some baby dresdens. This little guy measures out just under 4 inches. 
I'm thinking of making at least 12 but I may make more! 
I thought about using my "too special to use" velvets. But I'm afraid to use them!
So I pulled these pastel solids from the shelf knowing I won't miss much fabric and I'm good with that. I think?
(I'm still playing with the middle)
I'm thinking about quickly quilting up the gherkin even though I have that signature quilt to finish but I'm already tired of that one! It's that ADHD working against me again!

Take care and keep on sewing!

The pastels really pop against the black background and I still love the purple and green pickle dish!
