Howdy! So I found out on Friday I have a baby shower at work in less than two weeks. Crunch time for sure, so I stopped at Joann's and the fabric store on my way home from work Friday. They are doing the nursery in black and white with Kelly green and geometric shapes, so I thought this design would be perfect! It is a free pattern that you can find here:
I am making this one slightly smaller than the pattern with 25 triangles across and 13 rows. I think it will be about 52 inches square. The cutting was pretty time consuming, but I got it done Friday night. I figure if I can finish the top today, I will buy a minky backing when it is 60% off at Joann's on Thursday, and get it all quilted and bound next weekend.
Last Sunday, I got my Sunflower and Pigs top done. It is is so cheerful and happy! The pattern calls for several borders, but I don't think I want it that big because I think I want to hang it. It is already about 48 inches wide, but I think it needs another border--maybe a 2.5 inch aqua one. What do you guys think? Any advice on borders and quilting would be appreciated.
I also finished my pineapple mug rug this week. I made the pineapple using Jackie Padesky's tutorial from Instagram @jackiepadeskyquilts, but I pieced mine to finish at 1 inch instead of 2.
I snagged this Rae Dunn Aloha mug at TJ Maxx and some Moose Munch to go with it. It was a gift for a friend at work. I am already embroidering another one that I will work on tonight for Slow Sunday Stitching
So much to do and not enough time!
