I am making a baby quilt for a newborn little girl.
BUT the good news is...
I got home from work on Friday and my hubby had made an easy fix design wall.
Bolts put into the studs, wire (like clothesline) to connect them and a tension joiner to tighten the sag if needed.. Peg a polar fleece blanket and I am ready to go...
I had 2 friends come over for the day to sew and look what I got done.
It was great to sit n sew for a few hours.
Thanks Liz & Elwyn.
I started with a jelly roll which ended up being only a half one. I added a few more strips from another one to make up enough strips.
Sewed 4 strips together and cross cut them into 8.5" squares.
Decided on the sashings.
All the sashings and borders are cut ready to finish.
I had this cute backing which I think goes really well.
Look at some of the brights to give a bit of zing.
These are some of the blocks. They measure 8.5"
I have cut the outer border ready, the same fabric as the sashings and have chosen a bright pink for the binding.
