I’ve been slowly working on my niece’s baby quilt. Her colors are a pretty lime green and tan so I went through my “resource center” aka “stash” to pull out my fabrics within her color palette. I had to throw in a little pink for our little girl baby, so this is one of the layouts I worked on.
I’m pretty sure I made some changes before I started sewing the blocks together. Here is the bottom two rows stitched together.
The other four rows are pinned together by my sewing machine ready for me to finish. I’m having to work between my itching spells that are a residual of my shingles. It’s driving me crazy at times and no medicine seems to help so far.
Last night, Ranger, my Maine Coon cat, found my stash of used dryer sheets that I planned to use as foundation pieces for strip piecing. For some unknown reason he loves to chew on used dryer sheets. He found mine in the sewing room and had a “party.” Those little white sheets were scattered all over the sewing room floor. This is just a small sampling of his handiwork.
Doesn’t he have a guilty look on his face?
By the way my newest favorite blog is now WonkyWorld ! If you love antique quilts you have to visit this blog. Bill Volckening has a gorgeous collection of antique quilts that will just blow your mind! I discovered this blog through one of my Yahoo Groups and am so thankful to the person who mentioned it. Apparently Mr. Volckening has some books published, including one featuring his exquisite New York Beauty quilts. Here is a sampling of the book HERE.
Better get back to sewing on that baby quilt.
