Posting about this, this morning, to motive myself to quilt this top today:
It’s mostly sitting down and getting it done. It isn’t a big project.
This top is made from 9 of Bonnie Hunter’s Idaho Square Dance blocks leftover from making this quilt (somehow I had made an extra row!?!?):
A little bit of sashing, an outer border and voila a small baby quilt that will be perfect for donation to the guild’s outreach program as soon as I get it quilted and bound. It’s already layered so I have no excuse, other than my talents at procrastination, not to get it quilted today. My talent has at avoiding quilting has been strong lately and my goal for March is overcoming that and getting a number of my quilt tops quilted and ready to be finished. I will do it!

It’s a beautiful baby quilt! I often have a large bunch of leftover blocks after a project. I usually put them on the back, but if there are enough for a baby quilt…Quilting isn’t my favorite part of the process either. I have no doubt you’ll finish your quilts this month! Determination!
What a lovely little quilt, and such a nice way to use up extra blocks! Good luck with the quilting, I tend to put it off, too.
That’s really pretty! Perfect way to use up those extra blocks!
I hope you are having some quilty fun today! I tend to put off making bindings for quilts. For some reason I always procrastinate over bindings! Good luck today. 🙂 Thanks for linking to Main Crush Monday!
Hi Yvonne! This is a lovely baby quilt – I love all the fabrics and colors you used. Yes, you shall get it quilted this month. It’s not hard and you just may find you enjoy it. Is it an issue of not knowing what to stitch . . . or what? Maybe we can help?! Thanks for linking up today! ~smile~ Roseanne
LOVE both of these quilts! I especially like the blue sashing in the baby quilt. Nicely done. Good luck with your soon-to-be finish.
A perfect baby quilt – well done!
Someone is going to enjoy that baby quilt made from the extra blocks. So pretty!
