I found out this weekend that my friend's baby shower is next weekend. I had intended to make a quilt for the baby. I bought this giraffe nursery print to use as a backing and was going to do a 9-square patchwork quilt top with my pink scraps. The technique went perfectly. I figured out the measurements. I paid attention to seam allowances and pressed my seams. I was so pleased - until I put them together and saw that, no, they did not go together. I was pretty bummed. But I had a baby pink bed sheet I had gotten at a garage sale that would match both. So, I ended up with 2 quilts - one for my friend's baby and one for my own. The one I'm going to keep matches Gracie's - it uses a lot of the same fabric scraps - and the other is really cute. I just have to sew up the binding and quilt them, but they're small and I can do that this week or on Friday. Yippee!
Just what I needed to do this weekend after a really stressful week at school!
