I have finally managed to meet other people here! Yes it took a few months, but I’m not an extrovert and my family keeps me busy. Thank goodness for instagram and facebook though. 🙂 Anyway, we have had friends over a couple of times and two of them are pregnant! They are both having boys and of course I said pick out fabric for a baby quilt!
Here is the beginnings of one quilt for a baby due in August. This pattern is from the Little Bits Quilting Bee book. It is made up of twenty different fabric choices. The baby to be will have a grey and white room and his Mom picked a few oranges and blues to go along with it. This is such an easy pattern. I ironed and cut squares one day, then cut the squares into the desired half hexagon shape the next day and started sewing. The day after that I finished! Really very simple.
The pattern calls for at least three borders, but I am still debating that. I will at at lest one border to frame everything, so I suppose it may end up needing three. This makes for a very quick gift!
