Last week, I loved my fabrics and layout but wound up holding a grudge against the quilt itself.
This week, I'm not loving the fabrics. I should have used more colors. Or used fewer colors and made it a much more controlled scrappy.
It's the Swoon block, of course, made with 4" finished half square triangles, which finishes at 32" square. Perfect for a one block baby quilt. I'm going to try a scrappier version as soon as I get some fabric cut.
Love making itty bitty baby quilts as much as I do? KaHolly is collecting baby quilts (24" square and up) for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Brooke Army Medical Center. I definitely plan on sending her a batch -- the quilts my boys received were one of the few bright spots in our NICU days, when I spent more time waiting in another part of the hospital or pumping breast milk than I did with my babies.
