I think I’ve got it!
I tried black --- too dark--- I tried white --- too light! Besides, who makes a white baby quilt? STAIN is the first thing a new mother learns ---
I know babies see black and white first --- and then into color, so this is what I decided to do!
I spent the morning cutting 1.5” strips from my solid black, and several different black on white prints. Again, it’s hard to go for things that are not too florally!
Reminder to self….think BABY BOY!!
I stuck with mostly geometrics, and just for fun, I threw in the black ants fabric…hahah!
I pieced checkerboard sashings for hours…only to find I’ve barely made it half way. Sheeesh! There is more piecing in the sashing than in the blocks! ((What was it I was trying to keep myself from doing with this baby quilt? Restrain from over-board piecing??!))
I dug into the box of pre-cut squares to pull out bright ones for my corner stones..there are still some that aren’t decided yet, more digging is required ---
This one’s just for Siobhan! I saw the Scotty dog and thought of you!
I think it’s pretty dang fun!
I’ll do more on this later – right now --- I’m headed out the door. I’ve gotta get OUT of the basment. I’m headed for a massage ----one treat I save for myself on a some-what regular basis. It is ALWAYS good for what ails me, body, mind and soul!
