WIP Wednesday - Um, I accidentally started a new quilt...






Hello everyone - Happy New Year.

I know it's been a while since I showed my face around these parts - seems to be an annual thing.  Every fall the blog gets neglected for a bit.  But fear not fellow makers - the lack of writing does not signify a lack of making - the exact opposite!  I have a bit of a backlog of things to show you, but today I wanted to show you a new project.  

I fell in love with Mary's Flying Snowball quilt last spring, and decided that I had to do one in a twin size for my little girl.  I had planned to do this year, but ended up starting it a few days ago.  I had some time in my sewing room, and instead of tediously pinning my Single Girl blocks (started in October), I decided to do a trial block using my new Flying Snowball templates, (bought here) and a beautiful bundle of sweet retro prints, (bought here).  I ended up working away all afternoon cutting and sewing nine blocks!  

I stopped there for the night, and thought about turning it into a baby quilt for one of the two new baby girls we know awaiting quilts.  However, as we are very close to getting Olivia a big girl bed, I decided to continue on and make it a twin size for her.  If I'm going to have to walk her back to bed 100 times a night, at least I'll get to see a pretty new quilt on her bed each time!  (Ugh I am SO not looking forward to her being free at night!)

I'll leave you with a Christmas picture of my little one.  This was her third Christmas but by far the most work to get her to pose and smile properly!  My husband does the lights and picture-taking, and I'm in charge of hair&makeup, wardrobe, and smiles!



Thanks for stopping by!

  2. What a little cutie. Don't apologise for starting a new quilt, we all completely understand and forgive you! (and perhaps ask forgiveness for ourselves). I can see why you couldn't resist that one!

  5. Your little one is beautiful....quilt is too :). I feel it is required to start a new quilt each year to get the quilt mojo kick-started.

  7. Those blocks are lovely, and the colors will be perfect for a little girl's room. I wish you luck getting her to stay there.
