Well, if you live where I live, it is definitely not heading toward spring anytime soon...
But I have a project in the works, that I'll be working on in the next few months before baby girl arrives. The above picture shows the fabric I'll be using for a baby quilt for the little Miss. The squares are cut out of 33 different Amy Butler fabrics (swoon!) that I won on ebay! It was under $10 for the bunch... I love them!
Then I picked up this fun polka dot flannel (half-off) that I'll be using for some strips on the front and for the backing. I was short just two squares (as seen above) for the pattern I wanted, so I cut two 5 x 5 in. squares out of a similar style fabric scrap that I made my nursing cover out of.
I sewed the squares into strips the other day, and now I have to decide how wide to make the polka dot flannel strips to go in between the squares rows. Hmmm... decisions, decisions!
Also, I'm contemplating taking the next few months to hand quilt the top once it's all assembled. But I may end up machine quilting it for speedy/tidy results.
Help me out, quilters, any tips for this gal??
I've only made one quilt in my life (back in college) and I used embroidery floss to tie it all together. No actual quilting involved... I'll post more photos once the top is assembled!
