I needed a project, to do today, that was quick and easy, and that wouldn’t stress me out. I didn’t want a high concentration project but rather one I could enjoy, see quick progress being made, and feel a good sense of accomplishment. Baby quilts are normally ideal for these sorts of moods.
The Bluebird Park baby quilt from Samelia’s Mum Blog was just perfect. Easy to do yet visually very appealing with a modern edge. I used fabrics I had; always important for a spur of the moment quilt. I used 8 fat quarters from a Sew-Sisters quilt shop monthly Bargain Hunters club fat quarter bundle rather than the fat eighth’s or layer cakes suggested in the pattern for the simple reason that’s what I had on hand. I had cut into one of the fat quarters of the Riley Blake fabric so that fabric only appears once rather than 2 or 3 times. Which really probably will only ever concern me and no one else.
I’m going to use a solid grey as backing. Now just to see if i have any batting that’s suitable and to decide how to quilt it.
