I finished making this custom order baby blanket this afternoon. I could have finished it last night but I got a blister on my thumb while I was clipping the seams. When I’m making table runners and smaller quilts, I clip each row as I get the blocks stitched together, but with this one, I stitched all the rows together first. Then I stitched the rows together in sets of three, then I stitched those blocks together. Then I had all 11 rows to clip at one time! Too much clipping. You can see more pictures at Etsy.
Well, this time, I had to “enter” space for the first photo so I could enter typing later, but this time I was able to place the cursor below the photo. I should have counted how many spaces I entered.
This is a close up of one of the fabrics that I used in the Mad About Hearts quilt. It’s part of the Timeless Treasures collection. I found one other piece of fabric from that collection, but I don’t think I used it. I should have kept track of the number of fabrics that I bought just for this quilt. It wasn’t as easy as I had thought it would be. I didn’t try going to a quilt shop (too far away), but I did go to fabrics.com. They have just about everything. They had pages of heart fabrics, but most of them were in colors other than pink, red, and white.
While I was waiting for my thumb to stop hurting last night, I starting laying out a new quilt. I’m going to make another quilt the same size as this one for my great-grandson. His second birthday is coming up soon. I have a blue print with teddy bears and other toys that I’m going to put together with a lot of other odds and ends from my stash for a totally vintage quilt.
I’m going to have to call my dentist in the morning. I managed to break another tooth tonight while I was eating yogurt! It doesn’t really hurt, but I can’t close my mouth. Might make chewing a bit hard to do.
Still praying for rain!
