Sorry about the late post today. Yesterday I spent too much time helping Kalissa and my thing got a little behind but that’s all okay. It’s all in name of being the mom and that being my first priority.
So this is what I’ve been working on….
I need a baby quilt. The sweet little baby is waiting on this and has been since December. I don’t have anything in mind for sure. I simply knew that I was drawn in to making some scrappy colorful blocks. Winter is getting the best of me and nothing can take a person out of the dull-drums like sewing bright fabrics.
I made up about 15 blocks and then started to play with ideas. (Sorry about the pictures-morning pictures when it’s still dark outside are never good). My initial thought was to have a big square of fabric in the middle. Something like 26″ x 26″ then make a border of these blocks. Then an outer border of the same inside fabric.
I didn’t need anything fancy…something useful and functional was my goal but nice too. Then I thought of putting her name in the center big square or her initials. My hope was to use things that I already have but…it’s been for forever since I’ve been at a quilt shop so Saturday I stopped.
I ended up bringing home two more fabrics. This one….
and this one.
I’m so confused and not particularly happy with any of the options. UGH.
Any suggestions? While I think and try to decided what to do for a layout, I know I’m going to need more blocks so I’m making more blocks.
I’m sure something will come to me,..or that one of you will have an inspiring idea….feel free to chime in with an idea. I’d love to hear it.
