Good Morning Quilters! if you recall, two weeks ago I blogged that I had started a baby blanket for a future, unknown Great Grandchild. Picture of the start of it: Blog post here I found the matching yarn skein, “Soft White” to finish the project and took it with us on the drive to the wedding last week. I worked on it all the way to Delaware and all the way back to Michigan! Here is the results:
It measures 28 inches square, and I think I will add a little border all around, as I have a little bit of yarn left over. I think it will finish it off nicely. It will be stored away for a future blessed event.
The dress alteration that I talked about last week worked out just fine, (making the dress belt into a tie around the neckline) and here is a picture of us taken at the wedding:
Now that I am back in my sewing room, I am going to tackle finishing my Jane Stickle replica quilt. I tried to make each block in the same way that the original quilt was done, and here are my quilt squares pinned up on my design wall. The comparison picture on the left is Jane’s original quilt which is in a museum in Vermont. My design wall is on the right. The next step is sewing all the blocks together.
What is on your agenda this week? I hope no hurricane rains are headed your way. We came through a thunderstorm with lots of lightening while driving home from the wedding. It was pretty intense, but thankfully short.
