I don't usually make quilts for people at work, except for one or two special circumstances in the past, but we're having a baby shower at the end of the week, and I was in the mood to make a quilt for the parents-to-be. I already had some fabric I liked that I'll use on the back, but I had to order the panel which is by the same designer/artist. It arrived in yesterday's mail and today I cut apart the ABC squares and added a yellow sashing--the parents decided they wanted to be surprised about whether it will be a boy or a girl, so they picked gray and yellow as colors for the baby's room. AND they have an animal theme going on. This seems like it will fit in well.
Gosh, I can't tell you how careful I was and how many times I checked to make sure I put the alphabet back together in the correct order! Can you imagine getting a couple blocks out of order? Yikes!
Tomorrow after work I'll pin the quilt and, time allowing, start on the quilting.
I also put the Harrington and Hannah blocks up on the design wall. Good thing I did because I noticed I had accidentally reversed one of my pairs of bunnies. I had to remove them and resew the little guys. I also left the eyes off another pair. Other than those mistakes, I think the blocks are okay. Next I'll need to decide what I want to do for the sashing.
