WIP Wednesday - baby shower

Pin It
So, I've decided a couple things:

1- I hate sashing. I like how it looks when it's done, but the process is boring to me. Particularly when using thin strips. I have all Steiger's blocks sewn in to rows, but I haven't done the long sashing yet. I need to get on that!

2 - Baby quilts are great. You feel like you've made so much progress, and in not a lot of time.

This is the one I will be quilting as soon as I get myself to the store to get some basting spray, or break down and use safety pins.
It's for Jay's step-sister's new boy arriving next month.

Slightly wonkified log-cabinish blocks. They look like little frames.
The focal fabric, Frolic, has little owls, raccoons, birds and squirrels.
I added some kona solids (chocolate and some others). There's a little bit of Love U in there too.
I'm hoping the chocolate minky shows up in the mail today, so I can get this finished!
Here are a couple close-ups of the blocks.

Fun to make...

I've also started on Julie's wonky mini wall quilt with orange. I tried to stick to my stash... but just couldn't. So I added a few half-yards of fabric I've been eyeing... I hope she likes it. :)
