Yesterday, enduring yet another of these cold, snowy Winter days, I spent time in the sewing room.......I just love being able to say that.........yes, the sewing room, playing with my set of solid strips from Connecting Threads. I started out to make something big, but I stumbled across a piece of fabric that would coordinate with many of the colors, and it was only a half-yard cut. So, I revised my plans, chose colors closest to the print, and made enough blocks for a baby-sized quilt. That's a good use for these colors anyway, don't you think?
The little top wound up measuring approximately 36 inches, square. I would like to IMMEDIATELY dig out something to back it with and go to work on the quilting. I always mean to spend this hibernation time QUILTING, but I forget that in order to do that I need to BASTE up a bunch of quilts during warm weather, when I can do it outside in my yard ! It's just killing me not to be quilting on the brown quilt, but I don't have a suitable back yet, nor have I decided WHERE I will baste it.
