Remember I’m working on a baby quilt?? This one??
Well I’m this far along. I sewed these together in a webbing so that I could sew them together without having to lay the blocks out. The top is small enough that I could hold it up and figure out what color would be good to add to the row.
I need to add the horizontal sashing strips next.
You likely noticed that I have and open space at the bottom right on the corner. Well, I’m meshing patterns. I have this book from Lori Holt….
I am going to make the upper case “J” as that’s the baby’s first initial and put that in the bottom corner of the quilt. The “J” is a little narrow so I’ll add background fabric on each side to bring it to size.
…and because I have to “tweak” everything, I think I’m going to jazz up the borders to make the quilt bigger. Yes, I already added blocks to make a 5 x 5 setting…now I’m going to add the “J” and a row of squares too.
I like what I gift as a “baby quilt” to really be more of a toddler sized quilt.
So when someone asks for a pattern on this one, I have no idea what to say. Tell me someone else combines patterns and their own ideas too. This is one of the many reasons why I can never figure out copyright arguments. No…this is not my design…but by the time I’m done, isn’t it?? I won’t have followed any pattern for the most part. Enough on that. We’ll save that discussion for another day.
