This week I’m working on a matched pair of fun little baby quilts for a matched pair of fun little babies-to-be.
I know what you’re thinking. I can hear your thoughts out there. “Lee—an almost entirely white baby quilt? Really?” But … but … it looks so cool. LOL. I wanted a sleek, modern, very un-girly pair of quilts for these little girls. I auditioned a lot of things other than white, and nothing was grabbing me, so white it was. (Edited to add: The block above is the Geometric Star block from Vintage Quilt Revival.)
And I’ll tell the mother-to-be the same thing I tell every mom who gets a baby quilt (or two) from me: Use it! Wash it a million times! Love it to pieces—literally! If it gets spit up on and drooled on and stained in a hundred places, that means it’s been loved, which is mission accomplished for me. Nothing could make me happier.
This week’s WIP Wednesday is brought to you by the Fat Quarter Shop. The Fat Quarter Shop was the first online fabric store I ever discovered, way back in 2007, and I thought I had died and gone to fabric heaven. : ) It’s still one of the biggest and best online stores out there, with same-day shipping and tons of free video tutorials on their own YouTube channel. Go give them some WIP Wednesday love!
What are you working on this week? Here are the linky rules:
1. Link up any blog post from the past week that features an unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here to my blog.
3. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!
