Weekend Update

We were excited about the idea of a sunny spring like weekend. But mother nature intervened with rain… lots and lots of rain. So we made due and altered our plans, which was probably for the best because there are quite a few things on the perpetual list. Luckily I was able to check a few of those off!

A high school friend of mine just had twins! A little boy and a little girl! So naturally I decided that they each needed a quilt. I hmmmed and haaaed for awhile before I choose these fabrics. For Madelyn I found these coordinating prints from Heather Bailey. They are bright and cheery and spring-like.  And for Tyler I opted for primary colors and polka dots.

Baby Boy Quilt... Pieces

I knew the basic pattern I wanted to follow, but I ran out of graph paper while mapping it out so I choose to use the magic of Illustrator to come up with this…

Once I finish piecing the top I will be ready to quilt it. Which will be much easier with the handy addition of curved safety pins. If you haven’t heard of these they are amazing! Because the bottom is curved the pin doesn’t pull the fabric. You can find them here, though I would bet you can find them at any local or chain fabric store.

With any luck I should get both tops done this week!
