We had planned to go to Seguin to see Bobby’s parents and Memaw this weekend. (Happy Birthday from the rest of us Memaw! We love you!) But we noticed Amalie had a fever about 30 minutes before we were supposed to leave. We decided Bobby and Cora would take the trip and Mommy and Amalie would stay home.
I took advantage of all the down time and worked on Amalie’s quilt. I was able to complete all the cutting:
I finished sewing all the lambs together on Saturday night. At the end I was ready to be finished with this step. It was late! But I had these 12 happy lamb faces to reward me when I was finished:
Then, today I was able to almost finish the quilt top:
I still have the checkerboard border to sew and attach to the lambs. Hopefully I can finish up Amalie’s quilt in the next couple of months. (Yeah, it’s not so much of a weekend project.) So far, I’m very happy with how her quilt is turning out. I love the hot pink and the brown combination. The pink fabric has white watercolor butterflies draped about. The white fabric has wee soft pink polka-dots on it. The brown fabric has swirly black dotted concentric circles.
This pattern is so easy aside from reading the directions. Also my mom and I made this quilt when I was 10ish. Cora inherited/sweetly demanded this quilt and it is one of her favorites blankies. She calls it lamb quilt and you can see it on her bed. Is it cheesy that I wanted Amalie to have a lamb quilt too?
This is a girly comment, but it worked out well that Cora inherited my lamb quilt because it works with her dark tan complexion. The hot pink lamb quilt compliments Amalie’s fair complexion.
