My wonderful friend came over to have a quilt-day. It started out that I had nothing to do. Of course that never sticks around long.
I flipped through some of my books and we talked a bit. Finally inspiration hit - babies! I know so many people that are having kids that this is an easy project to take on. I picked up the newest book by Elizabeth Hartman and started looking for something "fun". It didn't take me long to find something, the quilt called: Superstar.
Thinking specifically of the newest fabric I picked up this last week, as show in my last Sunday Stash Post, I wanted to use the pink and blue tied together with a green fabric. So the next step was to figure out - do I have enough material. Go math Go! I went into calculation mode. I realized why I enjoy quilting so much. . it takes the science/math geek in me, organization, and wanting to create art. Quilting smashes it all into one activity. Check check and double check. I then choose to check my calculations by cutting into one set of the color pairs I've picked out.
I had a few brain freezes along the way, a little ripping of seems, but it all came out as planned. Here is the start of a baby girl quilt. These are 2of the 4 yellow stars and below the other color combos I have chosen.
I'm hoping this quilt is small enough that I'll be able to machine quilt it myself. Oh course that's after a wee bit of sewing I have left.
I love quilting days!
