See this lovely quilt top? My fellow maverick, Susan, had this top languishing in her UFO pile, unloved and guilt inducing. When Susan read my recent post about the Denyse Schmidt wall hanging I made my sister for Christmas (with fabric from Susan's store), she mailed this top to me!!! I am so in love with it! I can't wait to get it quilted and start snuggling up under it! My sister is trying to talk me out of it. Not going to happen, my friend!
This is the progress I have made on the baby quilt that needs to be done by the end of January. It is the same pattern as the Christmas one my mom made for me. The blocks are made from three different sub-units - a one patch (the light yellow in the pic) and a two-patch (kind of a rail fence) and a four patch. Then the two big blocks are nine-patches - one made from the 4-patches and the one patches - and one made from the two-patches and the four patches. Ends up being a very random look. I am liking it - and I hope the mommy-to-be will like it too!
I have gotten to sew more these past two days than I have in the last several months. Nice and relaxing. Definitely need to make more time to sew some each day.
What have you all been up to this new year?
