I started this quilt with the intention of having square-in-square blocks, but after cutting some of the fabrics, I realized it was going to be tooooo busy for me. I ended up just stacking alternating rectangle sizes with small strips of green sashing in between. It looks better on my eyes, but it isn’t as fun as I hoped it would be. Ah well. I have brown minkee dot for the back, I just need a spare moment to make the quilt sandwich and quilt it. I think quilts always look better once they are quilted and bound.
AH! I just noticed a piecing mistake! Here comes the seam ripper.
For some reason, I had mostly blues, greens, and browns in my stash of boy-ish fabric. Probably because I used up all my primary colors in the transportation quilt.
I have been so busy with other projects, I just folded this up and set it aside for a while. And it will sit until this weekend is over- I still have to finish the girls’ Easter Dresses (nothing exciting, just ruffle fabric sewn to an existing t-shirt or onesie, depending on the child!) AND I am teaching the lesson this Sunday in the third hour of church to our women’s group (Relief Society). That is slightly important, right? Easter Sunday Church Lesson? Yeah.
This green quilt is the Boy counterpart to the girly one I made for my sister-in-law. If she has a boy, she gets this one! Since she is in Utah, I figure the warm minkee is a good choice for backing, just in case.
Kacie, please don’t have that baby yet. I’m not done with quilt #2!
