Five to ten minutes at a time, this quilt for Baby 6 (whom we can’t think of a name for yet!) is coming along. It’s true, I sew and stitch and build darling little blocks in 5-10 minute chunks of time. I just never get more time than that before my name is called, the toddler has found trouble, dinner needs cooking, my feet need to be put up, or some other normal interruption comes up.
A few months back, I spent days deciding on the colors, patterns, and fabric for this quilt. In the end, I chose the blue and green combo. It’s a combi I have enjoyed for a while, and with every block I finished, I felt so energized by the look of the colors and patterns together. They’re playful, classic, just wonderful. I am getting pretty darn excites to finish this up for Baby Boy.
Aren’t the clouds so playful?
So as I said, all the blocks are done. Now it is time for the sashing and building the rows, then the border, then assembling the quilt sandwich, basting, quilting, and binding! Whew, that actually feels and sounds like a long list of “to-finish” left. I am determined to finish it in 8 weeks or less!
Any quilters reading? I am not that experienced yet, so any tips and tricks you have, I will greatly appreciate you sharing!
