The pink baby quilt is coming along! I have doubled the “scrappy”-part and made one bow already. I hope to be able to finish one or two bows in the weekend.
I enlarged the first half and than made the second half of the “scrappies” one block bigger so I would get a larger darker diamond in the middle.
I have been playing around with the lay-out of the quilt-to-be and this is what I have settled on at the moment.
Have you seen the gorgeous vintage pink stripy fabric with the bows? I am so happy I found that at a thrift store! It just fits perfectly in this quilt. I am planning to use pink stripy fabric as the binding.
At the beginning of February a dear friend from work asked me to teach her how to quilt. We started working on a disappearing Nine Patch in blue and white fabrics. Angelique just loves blue! She was intrigued by my quilts and wanted to see how “it works”. We decided on making a table runner. Once we got started she was hooked! Sorry to pass on this addiction, Angelique! 😉
I do not have WIP-pictures, just the “finished-pictures” and these are a bit blurry. I will ask Angelique to take some “in situ” pictures at her home so you can see the quilt better.
Angelique did everything herself except for finishing the binding. I think she did a terrific job and I am really proud of her!
We worked on the table runner three evenings… between sewing we of course had time to catch up on everything concerning work and such as we normally don’t have much time at school. Break times can be so hectic! I loved these “sewing evenings” and I hope we can continue with this tradition. Maybe a pillow next time?
And oh yeah… my co-worker who became a grandfather just adored the blue baby quilt! 🙂
It is still very cold outside. It has not been this cold this time of the month since 1946…. Brrrrrr. Weatherman forcast warmer weather for next week. I do hope he is right this time! We are longing for sun and warmth.
