A New Project
Starting a new baby quilt. This one for the son-of-the-granddaughter-of-my-husband’s-mother’s-best-friend. Of course.
I had a few small pieces, each 9″ x 18″, of Star Wars fabric. What to do?
Cut them smaller…
Flower Garden Baby Quilt
A co-worker is expecting a baby. His wife loves flowers (the baby is to be named Zinnia) but doesn’t like the colors pink or purple. How to make something just right?
Well, first you find the right pattern. Check THIS out.
Yes, the blocks have a lot of pieces–53 each. And those pieces are little. But, the right thing is the right thing.
And an unexpected backing fabric from an old scrap that was too cute to be thrown away. See how the colors work?! Such good fortune.
And I love the outcome.
Another Quick Baby: Barn Swallow
A pile of scraps and THIS VIDEO TUTORIAL got me started.
In no time at all I had a quilt. It uses 36 blocks and finishes at 35″ square–a nice symmetry there.
I can see using this pattern again. It would work for many different applications.
For now it goes in the donation pile. YAY! No bored babies if they sleep under this quilt.
Top Ready For Quilting
That burst of New Year Energy is now a top.
I mostly made it just to see what it would look like. And to get rid of some of the overflow of small pieces of background fabric that were piling up. It is 72″ square.
Today In My World
We are having a beautifully snowy in winter in my part of the world.
This was just getting out of the house this morning.
This was the drive.
I love my job, but on days like this it would be so appealing to be home with fabric and machine…
Two More Tops
A long weekend with a lot of sewing time produced two more tops.
This makes 4 in the to-be-quilted pile.
And one more to assemble.
It often seems I push several quilts to the same point almost at once. It will be nice when all of these are finishes.
