Hi! Hope you all had a good weekend! I stayed in and tried to get things done...a small but tedious bathroom repair, for glamorous example,lol.
Anyway! My sewing machine is somewhat fixed, though I think it has a bad case of old age. By last night I was exhausted from wrestling with it, my son said I looked like I'd been working hard. (I think I was all sweaty and dishevelled! He thought I'd finally started working out at home!? uh, no.) Sadly my old Brother machine doesn't sew straight! Not a good thing when making quilt tops.
Here are the baby quilts so far....
I kinda liked it a lot, so I was sad about that! (The rubber ducky prints were described as stupid by my kids!) I set it aside.
This is their fav. Not mine.
I am trying hard to keep it simple. I may just applique the tiny heart in the center to bring it into my personal folk art mode. In which case I'll put the child's patchwork pieced name on the back, or maybe not at all?
Perhaps it's a strong hint to get out of the baby gift thing....?
I also gave myself the treat of working on my blocks for Lori's doll quilt quilt-along, here. Wow that was fast! She is done! The blocks are small enough and fussy enough that I didn't feel I have time to "audition" lots of blocks as I normally might. For now I'll just continue and then maybe make subs later? My pinks are too pink, all I had or could find, too dark.
The red block is a definite redo, crooked, crooked [center red square]---what happened?
Here's Lori's version of the antique inspiration quilt......
