I’m back!

Finally! I’ve so missed blogging and sewing and all of you! Between the work trip and the job in general, I’ve not had a second to sit in front my sewing machine in almost three weeks. But this weekend we were reunited!

I have other projects going that I should have worked on, but I allowed myself to just have fun. I made some super girly quilt blocks.


And it lead to a girly baby quilt top!

Girly Baby Quilt top

Can’t wait to make the back, get it sandwiched, and quilt it. Oh it’s been so long since I’ve finished a quilt!!

    So glad you’re back! I’ve missed reading your posts (and looking at your beautiful quilt!) Don’t you just love that pink princess and the pea fabric? I can already feel myself getting tempted to buy more!

    Welcome back! And what a way to come back! Perfect timing, thank you, as I have just started pulling out fabrics for a baby girl quilt, just like yours! I even bought some Mingle and some butterflies to put in, and now I know how good the princess and the pea looks, she can go in too!

    I love the way you have balanced the backgrounds of each block. Perfect!

    Great to see you, lovely quilt top. Did you do these blocks similar to the sparks blocks? (ie pick a width for the sides & top/bottom and randomly slice it vertically to add to the center block?) I love your use of solids as well.
