Have I ever mentioned how I like to make lists… more importantly checking things off of lists. I have been known to write things down that I have already done just so that I can immediately check things off. It makes me feel productive, even if “taking a shower” was the task completed.
Today I checked two big items off my list. The two baby quilts I was working on are done. And much like the first they are adorable! I will have a hard time parting with them, though I know that will all be going to wonderful homes with sweet and cuddly new babies. These two are going to a set of twins, a boy and a girl, just down the highway.
I really like the coin pattern, but I’ve had some spare time on my hands and came up with a few new ideas for quilts that I can’t wait to start on. I decided to make my own bias tape, that way I could use a fun fabric instead of the solid varieties found at the fabric store. I used Heather Bailey’s tutorial found here. It’s excellent, very easy to follow and makes your quilt truly a custom creation. For now I’m going to stick to making baby quilts, they are less daunting than their larger counterparts. And I think I’ll put some in my Etsy shop and maybe even keep a few in reserve for emergency gifts!
