In case you haven't read previous posts, this fabric came in a layer cake from a Moda line called Storybook. The layer cake had yellow, pink, and blue squares, enough to make three different baby quilts. The first two were this size and the blue version is actually 16 squares. I'll save that for the next baby boy one of my friends has. This fabric is a beautiful brushed cotton so soft it feels like flannel. On the back is a plush minky-like fabric in a beautiful peach and white design. All quilted with a meandering stitch.
And THIS is what happens when you don't have a design wall, and leave your "in progress" stuff on the floor near an open window while the wind is blowing . . .
It took me about 20 minutes to put it all back together again and to try and remember which colors I had put with which! Here is an update on my progress on Pretzel Twist. It turns out you have to pay attention to more than just which colors go where, you have to watch which direction the block is supposed to face next. I did not do that and had to rip apart at least 8 blocks and put them back in the proper order, Ugh.
Here is the view of everything corrected with a few new rows. Can you see the difference?
I'm loving this quilt!
This week I probably won't get a lot of sewing done as my daughter's state track meet is Friday and Saturday. She qualified for state in three events! Yahoo! Here is a series of pictures showing her running the 4 x 100 relay (she's the one passing the baton). Gave me a chance to practice my photography! Can you tell I'm a proud mama? :)
Next week life will get back to normal!
