It's been a while, huh? Oh well. Don't worry I haven't been sewing in secret and not sharing... I know you were worried. ☺
A new little one arrived in my extended family a few weeks ago... he's a really cutie! And since I've made quilts for his parents and for his big brother, I don't really see how he can do without! His mom is a pinner too and chose this pattern a while back. She was thinking gender neutral top with a pop of colour once we knew if the little darling was a he or a she. It's not my usual type of pattern, but mama's heart was set on it. Why not!?
So, the thing about buying a pattern on-line that you're really invested before you actually read the instructions. On the up side, you can buy it, download it, and get to work in a matter of minutes. Turns out that those blocks with the diagonal lines are made of 1½ inch strips. Yikes! The pattern recommended starching. Let me tell you, I took that suggestion!
Hope you got in some sewing over the long Easter week-end! Happy Easter and Happy Spring!
