Long time no see!
I hope you are all fine, warm and happy! The weather here is nothing like the snow in Buffalo, I only had to clean my frozen car windows once last week. I surely can’t complain! And I won’t… I will turn on the central heating and count my blessings.
You know how daily tasks can sneak up on you and claim your free time and energy? Well that is what happened this last month. One thing had to give, and that was blogging. I did find moments to sew, and I loved every minute of it. Sharing with all you just had to wait a bit. I hope you understand! 🙂
I have been working on several small quilts; all baby quilts and Christmas stockings. The stockings will have to wait for a reveal later so I will start with all of the baby stuff.
Finally someone is having a girl, or actually more people are having baby girls…
Soooooo bring on the pink fabric!
The observant reader may recognize this quilt from August… It had to wait for binding and was presented in October to a gorgeous baby girl from Taiwan adopted by a fellow teacher and his wife.
The fabric was selected to create an Asian look, infused with lots of pink and sunshine!
The pattern is based on a disappearing nine patch (corner blocks) and added borders to create the “Wrapped Gift” idea. See the yellow fabric looks like a ribbon around a gift?
This idea was a kind of happy accident with the yellow strips when I wanted to make the quilt bigger… sometimes things just work out! Right?! 🙂
I have no idea how big the original squares were in the nine patch. I guess they were about 10″ as I had a 25 cm WOF strip of the pink and white large floral fabric. The pink small floral fabric was cut to the same size.
The finished quilt must have been about 36″ square. I forgot to measure.
As you can see I went to town with all of the FMQ.
I added a fabric bow to finish up the “Wrapped Gift” look.
Pink flannel on the back, nice and cuddly!
The Wrapped Gift Quilt was wrapped and gifted!
