My quilting has slowed to a crawl these days. Since I gave away all that fabric last October, the pressure to produce has vanished. I never did post about getting rid of all of that, did I? Ok...here's a picture of the boxes of cheapy fabric I got rid of.
I thought for a long time about what kind of quilt to make for the new arrival. And once she was born and named, I felt like whatever quilt I made should at least somewhat match her personality (as much as you can determine a newborn's personality from a picture). I'd been wanting to try a circle quilt for a while so I pulled out some fabric that I thought matched the baby and looked cute together and started sewing. When I got it done, I realized that I had used pretty much the exact same color scheme as I used for her older sister's baby quilt. Remember this one?
So, there you have it! My first attempt at a circle quilt! I was THRILLED with how it turned out. I think it's probably the cutest quilt I've made yet. I quilted it in the ditch along all the squares and around each of the circles, then packaged it off and shipped it to my cute little niece.
Hope you're enjoying the Bloggers' Quilt Festival!
