So sorry Weezee miss interpreted, but I love it.
That's a really cute baby quilt Weezee. I like the backing too.
Weezee, I love your baby quilt. SO cute!
I love your baby quilt Weezee, nice work!
let me tell you what I did yesterday, saved myself $216. The sewing machine I bought in June went on sale for $200 less so I went back to Joanne's and returned it and then bought it online. Half price - that's a lot of material! About two weeks ago, they cut in $100 and then, dropped it another $100. made me so mad, but I just took control and went in and did it. without a machine for now, need to take my old Brother in for tune up but for $200 I can wait. So proud of myself!

Weezee, your baby quilt is really cute.
Thanks to all my wonderful quilting friends who continue to inspire me. I am so appreciative of your encouragement. Thanks for all your kind words. And Nana, you're right. Anyone can do these mini's. But slower sewing is the key.
Yep Mimi...slow is the best with those little pieces. I am hoping my MQ participants will be willing to spread their wings in this direction a little more.
Some of you have seen my ugly fabric quilt in the quilting questions threads. Now I've ran into another problem. About 1/2 of my blocks measure 9 1/4 x 9 1/2 (& assorted in between measurements) instead of this intended 9 1/2 square. I contribute this to the fact that I am using about 5 different types of fabrics in this quilt.
The light part of the blocks is made from scraps of sheeting, 2 different weights of muslin, and another cotton more tightly woven than the usual 'quilt weight' cotton. All these scraps come from the trimmings of backings on other quilts. This means some strips are cut with the grain, others cut cross grain. Add to that the colored part of the blocks turned out to be 100% woven polyester! I might have rejected the had I realized this when I agreed to do it. This is going to be a real challenge!
I dare not start frogging because once the polyester is sewn, it best stay that way! My solution has been to carefully match the ends of the blocks and ease the extra length in. Not every seam will require easing as the blocks are turned all different directions. Wish me luck on this. Hopefully since all the blocks are on point, the quilt top can be gently steamed to flatten any places that tend to bulge since the majority of each block is cotton.
Weezee, Love your baby quilt!! If you want a home for it I will gladly accept LOL. It is adorable! Susan
Mimi, You are one talented Quilter! Did you learn patience from your teaching career? Your work is just beautiful. I love Jo Morten! Craftsy had a great deal on her fabric so I bought all the different colored yds. they had to offer. Now I just need a pattern. Please show us the red when your done. Susan
