Well, I planned on posting this on Saturday or Sunday, but I got sucked into a good book and was too lazy to blog. Does that ever happen to anyone else?
Anyway, this is the last baby quilt I have to show and it was the only one I worked on in the last week. I don't try to save up quilts to show here, but I seem to go through spurts of quilting and binding as well as reading :)
Every once in awhile (when I have a cutting spurt) I put a sharp new blade in my rotary cutter and I tackle a huge pile of scraps until they fit nicely in this bin. I have 2.5", 3" and 4" squares, 1.5", 2" and 2.5" strips in here.
One day I was cutting scraps while my husband just sat at the table watching me. So, I gave him a stack of squares and asked him to pick through them and choose some for a baby quilt. Then I took his choices and the remaining pile and sorted a little bit more, added some white squares and this is the quilt that came out of it.
I'll be sending it to a dear friend of mine who is pregnant with her
first. They don't know the sex of the baby yet, but blue is my
second favorite color next to green, so I think this will work for a boy
or a girl.
On Thursday I'll be thread basting my Farmer's Wife quilt. I am so excited! My friend, Jessie, is letting me use her quilting frame. So if you follow me on instagram or flickr, you'll see some basting pictures pop up!
