I have all the alphabet letters and an Aidan created. I just need to get them all to the same size and fit them around the borders of the quilt..... once I get those blocks sewn together.
I also cut out all the keys for the border on the baby quilt and started making them into pairs. I am thinking the four corners will be a paper pieced little corner block but we'll see as it comes together. Hard to believe that little pile is 82 slices of 2.5x5.5 rectangles! I just hope I did my math correctly. I am leaving that stack of fabrics out on the floor until that top is done just in case.... does anyone else do that?
I also recut out one section of that midget block and got it pieced. I figured out my mistake - always trace from the front of the fabric when there are triangles! I did it from the back originally and that just doesn't work. Unfortunately, I don't think I have enough of the original fabrics I selected so I have to reselect some. The good news is I know it will go together this time!
Now I just need it to be nap time or have the kids play together without having me 'right there'..... so I can sneak in and get some sewing time in here and there. Yesterday was a long day with one very cranky boy who wanted to be hugged and snuggle all day long - both kids had slight fevers and were just off. Of course - I have a head cold too and from their sneezing I am guessing they have it too. Lots of Vics vapor rub (good stuff!) and humidifiers in their rooms for sleeping going on at our house.
I also forgot it is getting to the end of the month and I have not done my quilt square along block yet! I think the baby quilt will go on the back burner until that one or two is done. My priority is Aidan's quilt though.... I'd like the top done for a reveal on Saturday. Think I can do it? Then Sunday will be cut the midget one out for hand work and maybe cut out and start sewing the quilt square along block.
Hope you have a great day and can get a little sewing in.
