I think it’s really coming together. My goal was to have it finished for her baby shower on Saturday, but the night I had set aside to finish the quilt top turned into a late night at the office so that didn’t happen. The baby’s not due until March 15th so I still have time, thankfully. Here’s the finished quilt top. I got inspiration for the design from I’m Just a Guy Who Quilts. I just adored his quilt. My quilt keeps with the “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” theme and I used a lightweight denim to tie in the blues and give the quilt a more masculine feel.
I must admit I did start out cutting 6” squares and then realized that I messed up on several stacks cutting them only 4” so I had to cut all my squares down to 4” to match. We all learn from our mistakes, right? I spent Sunday afternoon making my quilt sandwich but ran out of safety pins when I reached the final corner, ugh! I don’t think I’m going to have time to start quilting it until the weekend after next so this project is on hold for a moment. Although maybe I can get an hour or two in on Valentine’s Day (if my wonderful and amazing fiancé doesn’t mind).
