On My Design Wall

Don'tcha just love starting new projects? Woke up early this morning and squeaked in a couple hours on this.

Nine-patches on point which will have a solid white/off-white block in between. (Haven't cut those yet.)

My daughter recently purchased a Pack 'N Play to keep at her house for little visitors who need a comfy, safe place to take a snooze, and she asked if I would make a baby quilt for her to have in readiness for nap time. She picked out some 30s fabrics from my stash and I added a few more.

Seems as though it will go together fast, and I'm pleased with the way it looks so far. I even have the quilting motif in mind for it already . . . which is very unusual for me.

Now let's see . . . do you think my husband would believe me if I say I accidentally locked myself in my quilt studio and can't get out to make dinner tonight? Hey, it's worth a try.

I really LOVE 9 patches!! Will you think I copied if I make one real soon?? I would think your daughter would already have at least one little quilt you've made. It looks like you've made a lot of baby quilts...where do they all go?
I'm sure this 9 patch will certainly comfort a little one though!!

Hi, Beth - Unfortunately, my daughter has been unable to have little ones of her own so she doesn't have any baby quilts. But she's EXCELLENT with children and periodically works as a nanny for two munchkins . . . soon to be adding another one to her roster.

Like all of us, I give a lot of my baby quilts away. (These babies just keep popping up!) But I'm also stockpiling them because I'm getting close to offering them for sale online via the website my daughter's getting ready for me.

Looking forward to seeing the new 9-patch you're thinking of!

Hey, locks can be tricky! Doors can stick! What's a girl to do? Thanks for commenting on me, I have to admit it was a little depressing to look at a list of 30 unfinished quilts, so I had to add another page of COMPLETED quilts! It cheered me right up! Love the colors in your nine patch!

Hi, Janice - And thank you for commenting on my blog! I know we're all busier than we'd like to be, but I so enjoy getting comments . . . makes me feel there really is somebody out there reading my blog! Plus, I LOVE seeing what everybody else is doing. (Just what I [don't?] need . . . more ideas.)

Quilt on!
