Then I cut out the 3.5 inch blue squares - I had a stack already sitting that were leftover from the anniversary quilt a few years ago so I only had to cut out half of what was needed. That was a nice bonus. Now I need to cut the 128 maroon squares to go with that step so I can sew them up later this week.
Then I cut some cream strips for step 6. At that point it is 5AM and the girl was making noise so I had to go cover her up and get her settled in again. I figured I should vacate the room next to hers so I decided to update the blog.
I also have been plugging away on a baby quilt for Aidan's teacher. She is due January 9 (cutting it close I know!) and hopefully she will be in on Wednesday when he goes back to school.... and the quilt will be done! It is a top. The back is pieced. The binding is made. I just need to pin it and do some quick quilting on it later this afternoon after work. I see some binding stitching in my future tonight and tomorrow. I'm wishing I took the hubby's advice and finished the pink chain part in the side and top border.... but it is done and I'm not changing it now. The binding will be the pink and the backing is a green polka dot with monkey's.
