New Baby Quilt...


Since it says in my profile that I love to quilt I thought I should post a picture of something I've done. I've just finished this quilt for my daughter-in-love's sister. She has a new baby girl and her colors are pink and brown. This is my first try at the a new type of quilt - it's supposed to look like you just threw it together because none of the squares match. Let me tell you it took some time for me to wrap my head around that whole idea. This is a good thing, I like to learn new things! I was showing my DIL and grand baby the material for this quilt and my little one said "oh, this is for me right?? I love "Hello Kitty!!!" So I promised her that she'd have the very next quilt I make and it will have "Hello Kitty" fabric. I already have the fabric for it. That's a lot of pressure for a mamaw to be under - those big, huge blue eyes laid the guilt trip right at my door and I had to think of something fast! I mean really who else would I sew ANYTHING for but her right? Poor little darling. So,,,on to my next project. Which is processing some green beans I picked today! It was nice to do this quilt for a change of pace.
Blessings to you all.
