Aidan's quilt


My sad little baby palm tree for Kathy! Her blocks really do look like the leaves.

This is as far as I got last night with the sewing on Aidan's quilt. I have a few more of the long seams to work on for the middle part. I ran out of that particular blue for the background of the letters and had to make a trip to Joann's Fabrics this morning (after dropping the kids to the pool store to visit with Daddy and Grandma while I ran next door for fabric). I got another yard and should have enough to fill in those spaces.  If I need more - I work tomorrow and that store is conveniently two doors down! I think there may be a few more scrappy stars made for the four corners and before and after Aidan's name. Yes, there is an A also but it is under the presser foot on my machine! The new goal is to have the top finished for next Saturday.

  2. Your letters look absolutely amazing! Getting them all to be the same size and puzzle together is tedious, but it will be so worth it to have a truly one of a kind quilt.
