Anyway, on with Q and a total change of direction as it is for QUILT. I am a hobby quilter and have made several. I made one for each of my seven nieces and nephews, and completed one for my son. If you want to see some of them you can click on the label "quilt" in my sidebar and it will show you those posts.
Now that I am expecting my baby girl I have been thinking about what I want to do for her quilt and am wanting to get on it soon since with Austin's I started it while pregnant, but didn't finish it until he was just about three. It's a twin sized quilt and he uses it now on his big boy bed, so it worked out okay that it took me so long after all. I want to do something kind of similar to Austin's but not as much hand work. His quilt has 12 squares with farm theme motifs appliqued and hand embroidered around the applique. It took me for ever to do the embroidery, so I want to cut back on that part.
On Pinterest I have been pinning away and came up with this for the general layout:
I do like the Sunbonnet Sue motif, and Austin's quilt has an Overall Sam block, but they are appliqued and take forever, so I am going to substitues some of the squares for traditional quilt blocks. I'm thinking of leaving the three blocks down the center as Sunbonnet Sue blocks. Then the top two and bottom two will be quilt block hearts:
The 6 outer side squares will be flowers on top and bottom, with a basket in the middle:
The other four blocks around the middle will be bows and butterflies:
I was hoping to go shopping yesterday after my doctor appointment, but just ran out of time with my other errands. I am thinking of varying the colors more, instead of the browns I'm thinking of going with purple to contrast the pink, but we will see when I actually look at what they have.
