#1 Grandson is a winter solstice baby. His little brother is supposed to be showing up in July.
I found this collection of fabrics at Connecting Threads. It's called Liberty for All and I think it's perfect for a July (or even late June) baby.
It's going to be yet another Disappearing Nine Patch since I am in a hurry and can piece it in my sleep.
A summer baby doesn't need a lot of knitty things but a nice comfy quilt to roll around on is always a good thing no matter what time of year you show up.
This one came together pretty easily. I did most of it in only one afternoon.
I tried something new. Instead of the spray basting, I used this fusible batting. I was terrified.
It turned out to be pretty painless. The fusing is gentle. You can stop and pull the layers up to smooth out any wrinkles. Sweet.
Having said that I am still going to use plenty of pins. I'm not taking any chances.
That's a great collection of fabrics and I love how you've pieced them together. I haven't quilted in years. You make me want to pick it up again. :-)ReplyDelete
