The dizziness is pretty much gone!!! As long as I don’t spin around in my office chair too fast! LOL. Feeling back to normal, so sewing happened the last few days. And I want to tell you how fast this pattern, that I loosely followed, goes.
I saw the Wiggly Whimsy by Moda somewhere and thought it just the cutest. When I went to sew with the charity group I dug in the storage room stash and found the Potato Famine fabric. Yes, that is what we dubbed the fabric pull. I found a good amount of a pale plaid I knew would work as the background to these dull fabrics. I just hoped putting them all together would make for a low key quilt.
Once I got home and got organized with the remainder of the fabric I realized I messed up! I was supposed to cut long sashing strips to sew between the blocks I made. Oops! I was just sewing blocks into strips and then strips together. Oh well, I just decided to add more strip lengths to make the width I needed. I ended up sewing 8 blocks long by 8 blocks wide. Because the blocks are 6″x8″ in size the finished top measures about 48″x64″. I am not sure why, but this top went sooo fast! Just a few afternoons of sewing and it’s ready to sandwich and quilt. Yippee! Not sure what I will do with the quilting yet, I even have the back ready too.
Next time I need a baby quilt I am using this pattern. It would be so cute with some brights against any color background. So that’s my WIP Wednesday, how is yours going?
