I also quickly pieced a baby quilt. The shower is June 23rd - just a week after I get back from our trip. They are doing their nursery in Auburn Tigers theme. Well....... All of the Auburn fabric is pretty obnoxious. I was able to find some blue and orange ginghams. Both are tiny little checks. It really helped to soften the Auburn fabric.
These are the fabrics for the other baby quilt I have to make this summer. I think this is way too many fabrics for the pattern I am going to use - but I would rather have too many choices than not enough.
Last night, DD wanted to have a friend sleep over so I stayed up late supervising the chaos. I got the queen size quilt pinned on the machine. This is the quilt I am quilting for the owners of the local sewing center. She already had it pin basted and had sewn a few basting lines. I dissected the whole thing yesterday morning. She was out of Warm & Natural batting at her store so she had bought a batting at Walmart. It was yucky. Do you like that excellent description? Yesterday I went in and got some W&N from her to use instead. I am hoping to get started quilting on it today. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Here's to a productive day!
