My sister wanted to do something that would be distinctly boy and girl, not matchy-matchy, but still coordinate with each other. I loved pulling the fabrics for this and I think they worked out rather well. Can I just say again how much I love that navy is so popular right now? Works perfect for both boys and girls, I think.
The letters were appliqued by my friend Sara. (Thank heaven. She did a much better job than I would have. Thanks again Sara!) I have learned that I am not a precise sewer and have come to terms with and accepted the fact. With quilting I can kind of fudge things, and my imperfections are hidden by multiple seams, big picture, etc. But I wanted these to look nice as well as be durable (since they are for kids) and since I can’t sew an outline – especially a curve – to save my life, I’m so glad Sara came to the rescue.
Pulling for this project, I really fell in love with the color palette. Now I’m itching to make a baby girl quilt in with this group. I’m going to have to leave this stack together for a little while longer.
One more important thing checked off the list. Merry Christmas in April! Now to get working on the other 43 things…
(If you are checking her for a review of Modern Quilt Perspectives, I will be reviewing it on Monday, April 7. Seems there was a little mix-up with the warehouse shipping the book. Whoops. I’m so excited to see it and share it!)
