It’s Friday and I have a little something to show for this week in my sewing room. You know how it goes, you have big plans but only a small amount of them are actually accomplished. I am happy to have been able to sew quite a lot but only finished partials. Like this new baby quilt for our next precious little grand- daughter, who will be making her appearance soon!
I used this tutorial for the blocks.
I have chosen a few of the blocks to show off individually! I had a little bit of a quandary choosing the layout of the blocks when I was only using the solids that came with the bundle. When we began talking about a new quilt for the baby Jennie mentioned that she would like aqua, purple and grey in the babies color scheme, but no grey in this bundle or in the print!!
I began piecing and putting colors together without the grey, then I decided just to go ahead and add the grey solid. I am glad that I did because I do like the way it is looking. The layout here is just about where I want it to be.
Here it is the way I plan to sew it together with a white sashing.
This is the fabric I have for the borders, the backing and the binding. This is such cute fabric it is Little Matryoshka by Carly Griffith for Riley Blake. It is just so sweet!! I am just not so sure about borders yet. Any suggestions?
I am happy with the way this little quilt is turning out, I hope mommy and baby like it too!!
Have a great weekend and I am going to post one more small project, well not so small, but anyway you will see, tomorrow!!
