After seeing this on pinterest, I knew I wanted to make one, too -- but with a few revisions to make it a baby quilt!
After making a few rough sketches to figure out measurements and how much fabric was needed -- it was time to do a lil' shopping!
What a fabulous mix of colors...
and of course -- what is a project without someone to give their opinion and assistance?!
It was such a blast having Anna here for over a week while Dan was in California. Not only did we have fun working on this project t.o.g.e.t.h.e.r,
(oh why, oh why do Virginia and Nebraska have to be so far apart?)
but we also spent much time in the kitchen making a few ol' favorite recipes, as well as trying some new ones! And the best part of baking so many delicious foods? Eating them, of course!! Hmm-mm-m. Taco salads. Deep-dish-chocolate-chip-lava-cookies. Greek quesadillas. Melt in your mouth molasses cookies. Mexican lasagna. German pancake. Yeah...we definitely ate well.
But back to the quilt... [smile]
such happy fabrics!
Here I am pinning seams in hopes of getting all the corners to (mostly) line up.
Some good music and conversation...
and a few hours later we were surveying our handiwork!
