I got back from our college trip a week ago and went straight back to work. I got an email about a baby shower for one of my coworkers in TWO WEEKS! I have been asking her about her nursery theme and colors since she found out she was having a girl in January, but she had not made up her mind until recently. She is going traditional with light pink, white, hearts, and bows. I needed a simple, quick design--I found this Sweethearts Quilt free pattern from Cloud 9 Fabrics. I decided to make mine smaller, so it is 48 x 48 before quilting and washing. I made 33 hearts and was able to have no fabrics repeated. Sorry about the terrible pictures, but we got over an inch of rain in the last couple of days and it was too soggy to get any pictures outside.
I hope to quilt it on my Pfaff this week and bind it next weekend--just in time for the baby shower. There are left over half square triangles and I think I will sew them together and make a pouch out of them. I was asked to donate something for a silent auction and a pouch with some lotion and other goodies will be perfect--that deadline is a couple of weeks too! Nothing like killing two birds with one stone.
Have a good week!
