I finished the first two blocks for Barbara Brackman's Yankee Diary BOM. You can read about it HERE. It looks like my colors are going to be red, cheddar and navy. I hope to keep up and not fall behind like I did on the last BOM, but sometimes life happens and other distractions come along.
|Randy called the block Gentleman's Fancy, I found it online called Bachelor's Puzzle so not positive on the name|
So the big news is that my DS3 and his Sweetheart, who will be known as DS3S are having a little girl!! So I am planning a baby quilt. They decided on dragonflies for the theme. I wasn't sure if I would find a pattern for a dragonfly baby quilt or not, but did find this one on Etsy. (Below are photos of the quilt from online.) I will be changing it up a little.
First, it is going to be a little smaller. The original quilt was 42" x 51", I thought that was a little long for a newborn. I printed off the photo of the quilt and cut it down, then re-copied it. I will probably make the outer border a little wider.
Second, no frogs or snails. I will be substituting flowers and butterflies in the blank squares of this photo.
|I covered up the images with a square of paper and copied that. I will draw in the design I plan to use.|
Fabrics I purchased. DS3S loves purple, and like me not a big fan of pink, but there will be a little.
Added some fabrics from my stash.
Now to get busy!
Thank you for stopping by! Happy Quilting, Rebecca
