Continuing with the theme of baby paraphernalia (hehe) : I started a baby quilt! I've had these precuts from Connecting Threads kicking around for a while with my baby niece in mind; it's called called "Sunny Day". Then I came across this quilting pattern from Moda Bake Shop called Strawberry Fields Forever ! It was a perfect marriage!
I started cutting right away. Do you know that feeling where you're so excited about a project that you drop everything and become obsessed? I love that feeling. Today, almost 48 hours later, I have this:
Ta Da! Isn't she pretty? These wonky blocks are right up my alley! No measuring! No matching seams! LOL They came together so incredibly fast. Now, I need to figure out if I want to use some existing fabric that I have, which while the colours work is a flat cotton instead of the flannel, or if I want to order some yardage from this collection instead so it matches perfect. Then for binding I think I want that silky/ satiny feeling fabric. What IS that stuff? lol
It's 40" x 40" . Do you think that makes a good sized baby quilt? I know this way I wont' have to piece the back. :P I could add borders, I suppose. But I'm kinda digging it. :)
