finish it up Friday -- pastel hearts
I love these weekly linky parties because they help keep me productive. Even though I need two girly baby quilts for the friends of an aquaintance, I've been dragging my feet. But give me the chance to share them with my online quilting friends, and that'll get me to the sewing machine!
I started quilting this little baby over a week ago and had it finished except for the last corner...then someone said "Mom" and I stopped paying enough attention to what I was doing and the edge of the backing got flipped under and quilted to the quilt.
The soft pink and white checked flannel I found to back it with is perfect for a baby quilt, but it's a pain to rip stitches out of. I did what I could in the few minutes I had left before it was time to get dinner ready that night, then I put the quilt aside and it sat until I realized that it was Thursday afternoon and I didn't have a project to post today. So I unwrapped my brand new seam ripper and got to work. And now I've got something cute to share in the linky parties this week.
