A baby girl quilt from scraps.....


Well, its the last day of September and I have not done anything with the UFO project I had hoped to finish off. Instead.... I had these nine patches in pink sitting in a pile with some 6.5 inch cream squares. The last two days I worked on getting them into rows and then sewed the rows together yesterday. I also pulled a butterfly pink print to add as a border. This little top is 36 or 37 inches square and should be pretty easy to finish off. I have a need for a pink baby quilt next month and I think this will be perfect. I think it will be easy walking foot quilting in the nine patches and might get some hand quilted hearts in the open squares and machine quilted hearts in the border. 

Off to work for me today and the kids have a half day of school so Grandma is picking up and entertaining them this afternoon. Maybe I can get a few stitches in today at work? Either way we are cooking lunch on the big green egg. I have some chicken that needs to get cooked and will bring salad things to go with it. Have a great day.

  1. What a cute, cute quilt! I think we might have chicken out on the grill this evening. We've got the grands here today, and I think some grilled chicken with green beans from the garden will make a great meal.
