A friend of mine became a grandmother to twins last week. A boy and a girl. I asked if they were using blue and pink in the nursery. She said no, they were using earth tones and woodland animals. I thought that is great for a boy. I had a really hard time making a baby girl quilt with earth tones.
This one is Oliver's. I saw it on pinterest yesterday, thought it over last evening and made it happen this morning. I have never done this without a pattern before. I did add a border on top and bottom. I wanted them to both be about the same size and not square.
Then, because of the trouble with an earth tone girls quilt, I went with this for Clover.
I haven't had a whole lot of quilting time on the Sweet 16. SOOOOO looking forward to that. I plan to do some ruler work on Oliver's and some swirls on Clover's. Unless I can get some blue Pounce before I get to hers.
I've been wanting to go to a new "to me" quilt shop (it's an hour and a half away) but, Saturday is my only sewing day so I hate to spend it on the road. I'm thinking maybe next Saturday DH and I can take a road trip and I will take a day off the next week. Lump is on spring break and March is one of the two months in the year that we don't have a holiday. Any ole excuse for a day off will do.
Wishing you more quilting time than I will have.
