Yesterday while finishing up a few things, I came across some pink pieces that I had cut long ago. I think I have moved them several times. I decided I was done moving them and I was going to come up with a plan (because I don't know know what my old plan was) I had 25 sets. After a quick calculation, I decided I needed 5 more to come up with enough for a baby quilt I needed to make. I dug into my scraps and found the perfect pieces.
It took me longer to pick the border fabric than it did to sew the blocks and arrange them. I love the variety of pinks.
I have been wanting to practice sewing the binding on by machine, and I think this quilt will be perfect. I think for a baby quilt, a machine sewn binding will work well. I am constantly repairing the bindings on my kids quilts. It has nothing to do with the thread, but tug-of-war is hard on the quilt.
I also hope to finish quilting my twister this week. I have everything done but the outer border. The quilting idea came from this quilt. I can see an improvement in my feathers from the beginning to the end. This is a large quilt! I was beginning to think I would never get to the end. I think it measures around 94 X 100.
It is hard to believe it is April already! I will post later on how I did with my UFOs this month. It wasn't as good as I hoped, but I did make some progress.
Stop over to Judy's to see what others are working on this week.
