My children have a knack for getting sick the week before spring break. We decided to pass on our planned trip to Washington DC and stay home and rest. It's a good thing we did because hubby and I have both come down with the plague this week. Lots of laying around, watching movies, napping, and some sewing!
This is the next baby quilt I needed to get done. The shower is April 4th. This is my attempt at a blended quilt -very hard to photograph when all the colors are so pale and close in color! I like how it turned out! The pattern is called "Seeing Stars" from American Patchwork & Quilting, December 2008. Can you see the stars hidden in there?
I have also spent some time playing around with the charm pack I got last week. I had also been admiring Judy's latest stash project. So I combined the two into these blocks. I had to alter the sizes a little bit so I could use the charm block - but it turned out cute. I can make two blocks from each charm square. I think I will use the blocks to make matching lap quilts for my daughter and my niece. I don't think I am going to set like Judy suggests, but am going to put some white sashing around the blocks, ala Crazy Mom Quilts.
What else might I get to work on this week? Hmmm....
