Now that I’ve got those two pieces of gold fabric out on my sewing table, I couldn’t resist choosing some other fabrics to see how well they went together. I’m not sure just what yet, but I think this grouping or at least part of it will find its way into a design.
Then I had to try those same fabrics with the other gold fabric. Now that I have some combinations to play with, I can let my mind wander a bit and see if I come up with the perfect design to use these in.
The second row of the baby quilt is now joined to the first. It’s going together easily, so I feel pretty confident I can have the little quilt that will be 40 x 48 inches finished by no later than mid-September. I’d love to use the silk batting in the baby quilt but, as that will undoubtedly be a quilt that gets a lot of washing, I guess I’d better stick with a cotton batt. I got spoiled with the silk batt as it makes fabric wrestling aka machine quilting so much easier. We have nothing in particular planned for this weekend, so I’m hoping to get a lot accomplished on the baby quilt. I’d love to get it to the point of being half put together by the end of the weekend, but that may be too optimistic.
