While neglecting my children today (just kidding!), I finished this quilt top:
In all seriousness, I’m in the process of finishing Amalie’s big girl bed quilt and it is a long process. I’m almost finished, just have to affix loooong borders.
It’s a pain. So if I work a bit on Amalie’s quilt, I reward myself with shorter projects.
This quilt came together pretty quickly: each block is 15 inches by 15 inches. In total the quilt will be 45 inches by 45 inches. I think the hard part will be putting the backing together. As of now, I have to piece together fragmented fat quarters to make a piece big enough for the back. (I’m not really a fan of the double sided quilts. They are cute. But just more work!) I may buy additional yardage, but that would be more money. 🙂
And Cora already has laid claim to this quilt. I tried to tell her it’s mine (real mature!), but I think I’ll have to placate her for awhile. Especially since Amalie is getting a new quilt and baby brother’s quilt is in the works!
As of now, I plan on quilting it using stippling. Probably in white thread. Oh! Maybe gray? What do you think? I don’t want to occlude the owl too much…
Hm. Rethinking stippling…
