yesterday, I thought today would be a good day to start a new sewing project that I've been planning for at least a day or two. But to do so, I needed to clear off some space on the sewing table, which meant finishing up some felt gift bags that were still in progress,
Some younger friends of mine are having a baby, and they're sort of non-traditional. Everything on their baby registry is black, so a cute little baby sweater seems a bit inappropriate. Instead, I think I might be making the first baby "smack-talk" quilt in existence. The first finished squares:
No sleep for the big people
My other stroller is a Porsche
I'm with the band
Dude, where's my binkie?
I'm rather proud of these, although I got the "I'm with the band" from the internet. I'm going to alternate these with black and white 9-patch squares, and since the embroidered squares need some extra reinforcement anyway, I decided to stitch them with batting and the world's ugliest fabric:
I had actually thought that I would have this all finished by the end of the day, but about 20 minutes ago I admitted that one day to make even a small baby quilt might be the teeniest bit freakin' delustional even for me. Maybe two days though..................
