Once that "I'm having a baby" post was out of the way, I could start planning, testing, and asking for some feedback on baby quilts.
I have been pinning scrappy stash busters all year so naturally that's where I started to browse when I wanted to find a pattern for the baby quilt.
At first I liked this one, but I thought it might be time to finally do this pattern, and then I found this.
And that's where I stopped and decided to do a test block.
The fabric I initially pulled looked something like this:
I started cutting squares based on Blue Elephant Stitches' guidelines and my first test blocks were promising..
so I kept going and by this afternoon, I had this:
I like it. It needs 9 more blocks to be the right size and I think I want to add in more dark brown and less dark orange.. maybe a few of the lighter blues? And the tree fabric?
Please send input.. I have to prep classes all day tomorrow and it will be nice to at least have email interruptions of your comments and suggestions. Thanks.
