Just finished the top of a baby quilt for a special baby girl in Anchorage that is due at the end of this month! I bought a few new fabrics, but used mostly stash, and the Simple Modern Baby Quilt pattern from Oh Fransson.
This was so much fun to put together, I've never ironed open the seams before in a quilt, it lays so incredibly flat! Its going to quilt so smooth, think I'll do something curvy on all those straight lines.
And the back is almost as pretty as the front!
Happy to have gotten this top done, since I have a lot going on... I joined Amandajean's 9 patch quilt a long - all greens and some Moda cream for the center square and sashing, this will be a large lap size for my Mom and Dad for Christmas.
I have 4 blocks done so far - and lots of squares cut, hopefully not too many.
Sometimes I do that.
Also I joined the Nothing But Scraps group, since I have two boxes of scraps that I would really like to be gone - or at least get smaller! Its going to be a paper pieced New York Beauty, I've had the papers hanging around for a long time, its called Cinco de Mayo by Karen Stone.
And lastly, I jumped in on Beth's Scrappy Christmas block swap!
