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!
The baby quilts are perfect, careful your friends will be having babies just to receive a quilt. I can’t wait to see what you put together next. So…..making to do lists that include things you have already done? How strange is that? Do you make shopping lists of things you have already bought? Sometimes a feeling of accomplishment is hard to come by.
