So I decided it was a good time to start a baby quilt. My goal for this one was to have everything come from my stash. Hence, using colors that I normally would be scared to put together. I drew it up first in EQ and I've gotta say that I almost gave up. It seemed like it was just going to be too crazy of a color concept. See what I mean?
This is forcing me to do it and since all the colors are in the fabric I think it's going to come out ok. Do you sense that I'm trying to convince myself? Because I am.
I'm making two of these...twin quilts. One will have the pink chain, the other will have the red chain. I may make their bindings opposite too but other than that they'll be identical. Hmmmm, I wonder who I know is having twins? We'll see if she's into blog reading now that she's home on bed rest!!
I just finished putting the inside of the first quilt top together. I found two green fat quarters that match the green elephants and I think I'll use that as an inner border before the border print. So I don't have to miter the corners, I'll use corner stones. Just not sure what color yet.
Whew...I feel a bit relieved. I'm liking it a lot better now than when I first started!!!
