(This is Cade...wish he had on a blue shirt so I could show you what I mean.)
Look how he is trying to be happy even though he doesn't have his own quilt:)
...Of course the grey-green fabric adds contrast, and I love that, so I added them into the mix. I put them into my shopping cart, and made the purchase. But when they arrived, I realized I may not have bought enough fabric. Story of my life. So I did what any seasoned sewer does and I utilized my "stash".
Stitch the blocks together in order into horizontal rows. Press seams all one way. Now stitch the rows together till you have it all stitched up.
Going to the store right now to get the template plastic I need before I start cutting. Gonna pick up a nice backing fabric and something for the binding too while I'm there. I have a gi-normous roll of cotton quilt batting in my studio, so I don't need that.
After I have a diet coke.
Here is the picture of my finished top! It did not take that long... I started cutting last night, laid it out and arranged the rows, stayed up sewing for a couple of hours, and finished it this morning in about another 1/2 hour.
I ended up adding a couple more fabric options, and looking at it now, i can see things I would change, but over-all it's great!
It was randomly arranged, but I think I would like to see it done in a different way. Maybe next time;)
