After two years of stashing the fabric that Tracey, my daughter, chose for my granddaughter Janelle’s twin size quilt – I finally got started. We had a Santa Barbara Modern Quilt Guild Sew Day on Saturday and it was the perfect time to start this quilt. The focus fabric is the tulips and we chose coordinating colorful prints to make this a great quilt for a 3 year old.
The tulips came in a panel that I cut apart and then bordered with two different fabrics. I also made some Disappearing 4-Patch blocks. I did some scrappy log cabin but Tracey thought they were too busy so I will put them on the back. We decided on square in a square for the remaining blocks.
Now I just need to add the white sashing and then the coordinating border. This is the border fabric. There are four horizontal strips so I will cut them apart and add them as a border and then I’m going to bind in red.
My goal is to have this complete by the time I leave for Sisters, Oregon on July 7th. I’m linking to WIP Wednesdays at Freshly Pieced. Lots of projects to check out there!
Thanks for checking in.
