followup to 7-21
Just thought I would share a couple different versions of the quilts from the previous post. Mom pieced the oh, so cute "Baby Picture Frame" featuring the pastel bears. I quilted it. (This was before she machine quilted) The colors are so sweet. We've got a few others in our files in primary colors that are just as cute. The star part probably show up a little better the darker colored ones so that changes the look.
This is an animal interlocking squares that I made but I believe
Mom had this one all kitted up. Maybe not though because I managed to NOT get those animals going in the proper direction. Directional print. Now if I decide to use my 1/2 yard of butterfly fabric on this one, trust me I will be mindful which way they will be flying. Doesn't mean I still won't get it wrong but I'll be mindful.
As I said before both patterns are in the Trudie Hughes Crib Quilts book. Both quilts look far more intricate to piece than they are.
I have already had a quilty day today without even turning on the machine---a box from Finn arrived. The quilt group meets on Tuesday so the abandoned blocks go to Sarah and the cut squares to Theramae. Other things I will piece---lots of ideas whirling around in my head and something to contemplate as I quilt this afternoon. I didn't get terribly far yesterday afternoon and didn't do the "2nd shift" after supper but it is NOT a race. Need to enjoy the process after all or why do it? Maybe tomorrow I'll have a unbound one to show you.
