I worked on my King Size Wonky Log Cabin quilt. In fact I finished all of the blocks and now I am putting sashing/border around each one. This is a huge quilt for me, so I am working in sections. I am considering "quilt as you go" because I don't think I can push a king size quilt through my machine. The largest I have ever done is queen size and it was very difficult. On the other hand I am just considering finish the top and getting it quilted with a long arm because it is so big. I need to decide pretty soon.
I snapped a couple of photos (not the best quality) of it laid out on my sewing room floor.
Although I have made some progress on the above mentioned quilt, I thought I should take a break and do a smaller project that might get me back into a sewing routine. I have three friends expecting babies in the next 4 months... And I know that once I find out the gender of my baby I probably won't have time to sew a lot of projects for other people so I decided to go ahead and get their gifts made.
I decided that making quilts was out of the question, so I opted for simple minky backed blankets, matching burp rags, and a matching diaper case as a gift set for each.
I had to order the minky and fabric for two of the gifts, so I haven't started on any of the blankets. I completed two of the three burp rags for one set and I think they are coming out rather cute. I am using leftover Animal Party by Amy Schimler for Robert Kaufman that I used to make a quilt years ago. I love this fabric and wish I could get more of it. It is so fun for baby boys.
I need to finish up the third burp cloth.
I am looking forward to the minky and other fabric arriving in a couple of days so I can work on all of these adorable gift sets.
For the other sets I will be using Ruff N Tuff by Sleepy Tre for Robert Kaufman and Rock N Romance by Pat Bravo.
On a personal note my 4 year started Pre-K today! We homeschool, but decided to send him to a local private Christian School 2 days a week for Pre-K. He is a mess! We tried to take first day of school pictures, and as usual couldn't get one that didn't have a silly face.
