There were only two things on my list last week.

I’d show a picture of the room as it is this week, but it’s hard to see the changes. You’ll just have to believe me when I’ve said I’ve made progress.  What can I say – I got distracted – but it was a good distraction.

I’ve finally finished the baby quilt!  A baby girl quilt has been on my list since at least May.  I promise I was cleaning my sewing room, when I got the urge to get this top quilted.  I think it might have been receiving an invitation to a baby shower where I need a “boy” quilt.  I couldn’t very well skip ahead to that quilt when this quilt is going to a baby who is now 2 1/2 months old.  It also helped that I was able to pull a piece of batting out of my batting box that was the correct size 🙂

Here’s a closeup of the quilting.  Nothing fancy – diagonal lines through the green, resulting in a X on the white squares and a curvy 1/4″-ish on the petals.  I used a light pink thread.

The backing is the pretty green floral I bought at the end of May on a shop hop. The binding and label is a pink Marble I had in my stash.

So what’s up for this coming week?

  • Continue working on the sewing room.  I think this project is going to last all month.
  • Find batting for the baby boy quilt. – the backing and binding are with the top.

Way to go! Isn’t it amazing how cleaning will inspire finishes also? I am impressed that you already have the bably bo quilt almost ready to go!

I look forward to seeing your room at the end of the month!
