Yesterday, I started my third kidlet's baby quilt. As I type this, he's kicking around in my tum-tum, giving what I'm taking as acceptance of the final plan, even if the plan isn't exactly...um...final.
I pieced two arrow shafts and two arrows from Sarah's magnificent arrow pattern. I'm working up the courage, little by little, to tackle the feathers. Man, this is definitely the tiniest paper piecing I've done to date. But I think it'll turn out nicely in the end. Or rather, I hope so because I always forget how much fabric paper piecing takes, and I only have a limited amount!
I've decided to do a medallion quilt for Fava, and I've got sketches of the outer rings, but I can't quite figure out what I want to do for the center medallion. I did know that I wanted the arrows to have a navy background, so I figure I'll tackle them and see where I am upon completion.
And I managed to finish my daddy's birthday present, though I don't have any pillow forms to model the covers, so your imaginations will have to work a bit. Simple 18" churn dashes in red and navy, backed by a sheet that matches his bed set. So easy peasy, and yet I really dragged my feet getting them done. Peeps, I chose to wait on hold with my insurance company yesterday rather than piece them. You know the procrastination is bad when you willingly make that kind of phone call!
Up on the to-do list are three quilt tops, patiently waiting to be quilted, GW May blocks, a bee block, and I've got to get started on yet another baby quilt. One of these days my to-do list will be smaller, right? Either that, or it will get to be late summer, and Fava will arrive, and that will probably put a screeching halt to my productivity (or lack thereof). Better get back to piecing arrows, right?
I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!
