I love making baby quilts!
They are....I think...my favorite kind of quilt to make!
I love using charm packs.....
there aren't always enough "charms".
It's fairly simple to add some blocks.
See the three sort of solids on the left???
They are filling in for me.
I don't think anyone will ever "suspect"
they don't "go with" the quilt.
I love adding little tiny 2" squares.
This black and white with pins was LONELY in my 2" drawer....
It will be......
Lonely NO MORE!!!!
Don't you think It fits perfectly into this quilt!
That reminds me..... I need to sit down one of these days
and just CUT squares (out of scraps)
to replenish my 2", 2 1/2", 3"....etc. drawers.
Pickin's have been slim lately!
Here is a faithful friend!
A bed sheet.
It was Found at a thrift store a while back.
This friend seems to pop up in quite a few of my projects!!!!
I used it just yesterday making my apron ties!!!
Today it became binding!
Red and white check will ALWAYS be welcome in MY quilts!!!!
See that backing??
I bought quite a bit of this gingham last year.
I LOVE it!!!!
Only two yards left!
When quilting straight lines.....
I've found that quilting on the diagonal/bias
is MUCH easier than quilting straight across.
The bias is very forgiving!!!!
And I, for one,....need that!
I have issues with my straight quilting lines....
but never seem to have them when I quilt
I Think those are all my "thoughts" on this quilt.
Except to say.....
I can't WAIT to give it away!!!!
That's the best part of making a QUILT!!!!
