So I finished the quilt top for the baby quilt I talked about in this post. I had to play around with the lay out of the little strips as my layout looked awfully matchy-stripey with the original way the pattern I was using as a guide had the layout (and this was because of the order in which I sewed the pieces together to begin with, not a fault of their layout). So, I need to iron the quilt top and backing, and then make my quilt sandwich and quilt away. Still haven’t decided on the binding yet.
And Yoshi is taking a break right now–I may wrestle with it later this week (if I don’t catch the death plague Matt has). I’m sooo close with it, too!
Since Matt is still sick on the couch (poor guy!), I started working on the baby quilt I’m going to be putting up for sale. I bought this jelly roll from JoAnn’s, and got this fabric for the backing. I think I’ll use this one that I have leftover from another project for the binding; and if I don’t like it, then I should have enough of the backing to make the binding.
In case the links disappear, the jelly roll is Land of Whimsy Giraffe print (item 14173678), the backing is Snuggle flannel white/blue dot (item 10855385), and the potential binding is Keepsake Calico blue star (item 4248910).
I’m using this pattern from Fat Quarter Shop as my rough guideline.
It’s going really quickly; in under an hour I had the 3 big strips of 6 smaller strips sewn together. I’m hoping to finish this one up quickly and get it up for sale–I think I’ll try our local Facebook buy/sell group.
