momentum is a wonderful thing

Sunday, I was going to piece ten blocks on my NewFo and then move on to something else. I go the blocks done, and got started on the baby quilt I had planned...and before I knew it, the baby quilt was done and I was back to the NewFo blocks.

I wanted to try the spiral baby quilt with rounded corners, but I had a bit of trouble keeping track of the rows on the first one and wasn't quite ready to throw half square triangles into the mix.

So I tried it with rings:



A piece of purple checked fabric has been sitting on the table next to my recliner and whispering that it wanted to be Sunbonnet Sue's bonnet. Its friend, a flowered puple print, wanted to be her dress...and I had some 3" squares left over from the first two baby quilts I made this year...

So Monday afternoon I got out my Go! and the Sunbonnet Sue die I just bought from Jo, and that fabric became a hat and dress...



I kept changing plans as I went along. It's a miracle that everything fit together. Then she needed backing and I had some narrow lengths of the fabric I used for the dress, and some 3" squares left, so she got a pieced backing...



And while the cutter was out, I decided to try out the Hearts die...



And then I pieced another block for the scrappy Irish Chain. I've got a couple of different ideas where it might wind up once it's done. Maybe this one isn't supposed to be mine.
