I slept in this morning. It was great to wake up without an alarm. I don't get to do that too often so I take advantage of it when I can! I got up, started some laundry, started the dishwasher, had a cup of tea and headed upstairs to the sewing room....I turned on the iron and pressed the fat quarters I pulled out last night and started cutting. I made twenty blocks and put this little top together...I think it turned out cute but I'm going to have to do some math now to figure out the border...
these pics are from her blog and this is what I wanted to make for baby Carmen.
This is what I wanted to make (in pinks too) but my sweet son said no to the pink!!! Can you imagine? He doesn't like pink. Boy, is he in for a surprise when he has this baby! Everyone buys pink for a girl but anyway, I complied with his wishes and pulled out purples.. Here's the middle part, now I have to figure out the border...
Also, I wanted to tell you a quick tip...I quick piece my squares and leave them together and take them to the ironing board. I also don't use my scissors...I use my needle threader to snip between my squares...there are places selling the free standing thingies to snip your thread but you have one built in with this needle threader. Two for one...not bad!
Double Delight - I want to make this one too...soon.
