In the beginning of the year,
there was a bit of a lull in the need for
I made a couple to donate to my church
and a couple to donate to another charity.
I need three baby quilts for wee ones being born
My niece is having a girl...
her 5th child!
I've had this roll of Kaffe fabrics for a long time
and bought a roll of white with yellow pin dots last year.
It was time to create something with these.
I sewed two sets of three strips together
and then sewed those sets together,
making a tube.
I used my triangle ruler to cut squares from the tube strips
and ended up with these squares.
I'm still playing with the placement
and will begin sewing these together soon.
In the meantime,
I wanted to play with
(She has been cleaned and oiled and sews so smoothly!)
There were scraps left over from these strip sets,
so I cut HST's from those.
Yesterday I made this on Maisie!
It's 16 1/2" square, so I think it will end up being a pillow.
These are all of the fabrics used in the baby quilt.
It will be a sunshine filled quilt (and pillow), for sure!
I need to be careful now.
So far this year I have been able to reign in my desire to
keep starting new things without finishing what I've started.
It's beginning to get out of control again.
My cutting table is beginning to groan from the weight of the
blocks and fabrics on it.
This week I am going to sew some of these things
into tops and get a couple of piles off of my table.
Wish me luck!
I hope everyone that celebrates Easter had a joyous day yesterday.
