Two things I am juggling this past week. Some baby quilts to stash away for emergency baby shower gifts and the February instructions for my Garden Party Down Under Block of the month project.
I have two daughters that live within 15 or 20 minutes of me. We are long ago past the new grand baby stages, but they often are invited to baby showers and ask if I have a spare baby quilt hanging around. Well, yes I do. I keep a stash of them all ready to give them. They hit me up with three just before January so my supply was getting pretty low. This past week I got busy and turned out two. Just need those bindings hand sewn down and we are back in business. I am back at my Garden Party Down Under with February's instructons given out on the 1st. I have run into a little issue with the extension of the vines into the half square triangles. The directions said mirror image of the two vine and leaf sides, which I seem to have misunderstood. The top vine section was suppose to be the same curve as the lower one. Now I could scrap the entire border and also the second one I have almost done and start over, or figure out some different design to join it to those half square. The appliqué is all done on this finished border and part on the second. I'm voting for figuring out a new design to join them.Zoey our little 11 month old Yorkshire Terrier has found herself the perfect afternoon nap place. Not a care in the world. I was tempted to join her after discovering my mishap on my BOM. Sometimes a dogs life is just the right place to be.
Your stash of baby quilts is such a good idea! My sons never ask for that type of thing, lol! Hope you get your Garden Party border figured out. That would make me want to just go take a nap, too!ReplyDelete
Yes, Zoey has the best life ever. A new design sounds good, for joining the appliqués ;) Lovely vines and flowers.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing, and linking up!
Super cute baby quilts!! Zoey has the right idea!!!ReplyDelete
That's always such a frustrating feeling to realize you made a major error on a project. Hopefully you've already figured out a solution.ReplyDelete
You are so talented and your precious pup is so cute.ReplyDelete
Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous day and week. ♥
Having a small supply of baby quilts is a great idea. I've often mentioned to my grown up granddaughters that I have a couple of baby quilts here if they would like one for friends or co-workers. So far, no takers. Zoey looked completely happy snoozing away.ReplyDelete
Those vines will still be pretty, and yours will have its own version! I would totally figure out how to make what's been done so far work in the overall scheme. And the baby quilts are adorable - what a perfect way to showcase a nice print!ReplyDelete
Instructions are open to interpretation! Do what works for you and consider it a design decision.ReplyDelete
What a fun idea to keep baby quilts around!!! I like that!ReplyDelete
I wish I had time to keep a baby quilt stash, but I have sixteen nieces and nephews and all the great-nieces/nephews so they keep me pretty busy. You'll work out something for the borders, I know it!ReplyDelete
Those baby quilts are adorable! Love Garden Party Down Under - it's just so pretty. Yes a dog's life (and our cats) seem pretty desirable sometimes - lol!ReplyDelete
Thank you for linking to To Do Tuesday!
I would definitely figure out your own way to join them because that border is looking so pretty! Nice of you to have baby quilts on hand for your daughter's friends. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.ReplyDelete
Hi Donnalee, I'm sure that you'll figure out something for the other side! Having extra baby quilts to give out sounds like a good idea. Thanks for linking up to Free Motion Mavericks!ReplyDelete
