A little bit of sewing . . .

I'm always relieved when the holidays have passed.

I don't know why . . . . I don't go over board on much,
just the eating part . . .  it should be the exercising part, but well, you know.

I do always try to maintain some sense of normal,
which means a bit of sewing squeezed in as much as possible.

So I am pleased that I was able to finish this baby quilt in one week.

It started last Sunday, before Christmas, at Earamicha's 
house with David.  
We decided to get together to have a little sweat shop sewing.

It was that very warm day, 70* in NYC, 
so yes there really was sweating!

I was able to cut and sew all the blocks for a disappearing nine patch.

Then this past Friday night, I cut them all up and laid them out.

I bit a sewing while watching a movie and it came together quick!

Sunday brought quilting.
Love my Juki!

And now a bit of binding before I hit the sack.

Here is the inspiration quilt I saw a few weeks 

My quilt measures 30" by 38"
The original squares before cutting were 2.5"
This baby quilt is a donation for our NYC Metro Mod Guild.
Hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are relaxing too!

    I need a quick baby quilt and yours has inspired me. I needed something contemporary and easy .

  2. Wonderful. The teals, blues and greens make the orange pop.

  3. Such great fabric choices for you D9P! I have made many of these in various sizes. May your New Year bring good health and happy times...

  4. Thanks for the inspiration. The orange really works!

  5. That's a lovely quilt. It's a good idea to use the technique on smaller squares - so effective.
