I finished this quilt top today. Most of the work was done yesterday, I just had to put the end rows on for it to be finished. Most of the pinwheels were made by the lovely ladies in my quilting group for the 2009 round robin. I was originally thinking it was for on of Walker's nephews, but now I think it will live in our tv room. I have some of the pirate fabric (in the big pinwheel top left corner) and a bunch of the blue watery fabric from the sashing left, so hoepfully that will be enough for the backing.
Then because I've been feeling discouraged a lot lately, like for months, I decided to do some quick easy projects to give away.
(I forget the line this charm pack is from. It's so girly, but I really like the large scale prints)
Super quick charm quilts to be used as baby playmats! Each of these took maybe a half an hour to assemble, because I didn't have to cut out the fabric, or think much about the layout.
These might end up being presents for all the currently pregnant mothers in our play group, as the yearly baby shower is approaching, but I don't know, would that be weird? It will only happen if I make enough that the last person choosing still gets a choice, and if I can make it clear that my feelings won't be hurt if someone doesn't want one. Do you think this would be weird? I don't know some of these moms at all well.
I finished another top that's more of an eye spy thing, and started yet another one. Making these is instant gratification, I really like that.
