Stop the presses. I have to interrupt creating London 2012 to make a couple baby quilts. I'm slightly derailed with this so I may not make progress on London this weekend but I hope I have 2 baby quilts when Monday rolls around.
I really need to make more scrap quilts, or rather more stash quilts. So when I decided to make a couple baby quilts I decided to use what I had on hand. What a novel idea! I love half square triangles and I really love simple quilts for babies so I decided just to cut 4.5" squares and keep it basic.
Since these are boy quilts I want to exclude florals. And so I expanded my blue palate to include aqua and green/blue through navy. I know some quilters shy away from incorporating so many shades in one quilt. Not me.
My opinion is that if it is going to be a scrap/stash, then I want to use lots of different fabrics. My half square triangle blocks are ready to stitch into rows. I'm really going to try to get these put together AND quilted this weekend.
Can't talk, gotta sew.
