Slow and Steady

I am steadily working on my Bizzy Kid quilt for Silas.  I’ve shown the first set of blocks here, and the second set has turned out to be much easier to put together.  Since I’m making the twin size, I just had to select a few prints.  Since I went with the Slate for the solid of the other block, I decided to choose a couple lighter grays to bring in some brightness.  Now it’s just a matter of sewing up all the remaining blocks {I’ve only got two of these finished so far, one of each print, so I could show you!} and then moving on to the layout.  I hope you’re not tired of seeing the same quilt.  That seems to be how I work on bigger projects…slow!  Maybe that is why I’m drawn to making smaller things, I like to hurry up and get to the finished result.

How about you, do you seek instant results {maybe you’re a quick quilter…in which case you’d have instant results on a larger project too!}?

    I love big projects, but they do take forever! I’ve enjoyed watching this one come together. It’s nice to read about another mama who can’t necessarily whip out big project after big project in record time, every time. :)

    Blues and greens make me smile. Love those color combos. I just finished a super quick baby quilt using a flannel panel. I’m generally not a panel person but this fit the bill perfectly, and was adorable. And the baby is coming next week!

    I love your blog! I am going to make several Kindle covers for Christmas! (FYI- It is really, really difficult to see the printing that is in the light blue!! )

    I just bought that crossword fabric online a few days ago & it hasn’t arrived yet so I was pleased to see how it looked sewn into a project, my Dad is a crossword ‘nutter’ so planning to make him something.

    So sweet! It will be a treasure for sure. The blue and green are so boy and wonderfully contemporary – I enjoy watching this come together bit my bit. XOXO
