As I sat by my sewing machine the other day, I asked myself how I could be this far behind in making my latest baby quilt. I mean really, it's not as if the stork just dropped her off un announced!
We had 9 blissful months (well blissful for me because I wasn't the one with morning sickness!) to prepare for this little bundle of joy!
And she is just adorable!
AND she needs a quilt!
But here I am, stitching away like a mad woman, while she snuggles in a blanket that was not made by me. Ok, so I'm not actually that obsessive. I feel much more strongly about giving Gabriella a baby quilt, than I do about my cousin (Gabriella's mommy) actually using the quilt.
But, no one will get the chance to use it, if I don't finish it!
See all that white space on my design wall. That is primarily supposed to be pinwheels. Why, oh why do I always make quilts with those darn Half-Square Triangles!
If you remember the Christmas quilt I finished late in December (just in time actually) That is the same pattern I am doing here. Only with that quilt I used several fabrics and on this one, I'm only using three flannel fabrics.
Let's hope I finish this before little Gabby turns one!
