This baby quilt is slated for donation, though quite a bit smaller than the first at 32 x 41". Do not adjust your monitor... this one is insanely bright! All of solids you see in the quilt are scraps from the nursery bedding set I made before Miss C. was born almost five years ago (eep!).
I went through a phase about six or eight months ago where I thought I loved modern, improvisational piecing... so I gave it a go. But by the time I got to block #23, I was sick of it and shoved the entire project to the bottom of my WIP bin. I guess I didn't really love it as much as I thought, eh? Flash forward to about a month ago when I found them again and wondered what in the heck I was going to do with them.
Even after finishing an extra block, I knew there simply wouldn't be enough blocks to make an entire quilt so I hopped on over to JoAnn's and found (amazingly!) the perfect fabric to complement the craziness of the blocks. I added some sashing to the outside using more scraps to complete the top, and I must say it's grown on me. It's not my taste, but it's fun and bright. Perfect for a baby!
Postage Stamp Quilt Update
And lest you think I've forgotten about my postage stamp quilt... I'm still working on it. So far, I've finished 215 blocks and worked my way through all of my red, pink, coral, aqua, blue and yellow squares! I'm still working through the oranges and when those are finished I'll be left with one last color: green. (And while I was counting my blocks, I realized I haven't yet posted photos of my pinks or yellows. Oops! Looks like a post for later this week...)
