Well..I’ve been working as much as possible on the “H” quilt. It’s a baby quilt for Hubby’s great-great nephew that was born in early September…yep, I’m behind.
I used Bonnie Hunter’s pattern as a base for the “H” blocks but then I deviated from the pattern not making the sashing.
As is, what is here it in a 5 x 5 setting. The quilt is now 44″ x 44″. I think it’s an okay size as is.
I did a big debate on adding a border or not but I’m leaning against no border. I don’t see anything in my stash of fabric that is a nice plaid that would compliment the quilt top. What do you think??
Here’s a close up picture of the top….
I just love the way the blocks blend and come together. I think this is going to make a great boy quilt.
Next up, it’s time to give this top a good press and clean up of thread tails. Then I’m on to getting a backing put together. My hope is to have this on the quilt machine by next week.
I have another little boy baby quilt to make. One of my childcare moms had a little baby boy. I need to keep trucking along and get these quilts finished.
