But a friend of mine is expecting a new baby granddaughter soon, and I've decided that I have a better chance of turning these
UFO WIP blocks into a baby quilt over the next few weeks than I do finishing something new that I would have to start from scratch.
I made a bunch of 4" sawtooth stars using hand marbled fabrics along with the same background white that I used for the bear paw blocks, and I'm planning to frame four of those stars with white so they "float" between my bear paw blocks like so:
|EQ7 Mockup, approximately 50" x 50"|
The hot pink outer border is actually going to be satin binding. And I already have some lavender Minky fabric that I'm planning to use for the backing. So I have everything I need to do this already in my studio, and all of the difficult piecing is done. There is also lots of blank white space to play in once I get to the quilting stage...
Wish me luck! And if you and I happen to know the same expectant grandmother, please don't tell her I'm making something for the baby. Just because I broadcast what I'm doing all over the Internet doesn't mean that I don't want it to be a surprise! ;-)
