|The Baby Quilts|
After cutting all the pieces I discovered that the pattern would actually make a quilt almost single bed size - larger than I intended. I had cut the pieces for two quilts so set one set of quilt pieces aside and then made two crib size tops from one set. By adding a border I got a good size for cuddle quilts (flannel backing) or for in a crib. I'm now told that you don't use stiff bedding for babies because they might pull it up and smother. Is this true? Hopefully they will be used as daytime floor blankets etc.

What did I learn from this project? 1) I love working with the color in quilts but I get bored easily and now I know why I have moved towards art quilting and fiberart; 2) This is a great way to do stash busting, using up fabrics that you no longer relate to; 3) It was a great way to make use of my time when serious creativity was limited by the cast on my arm; and 4) I can't wait to get into some of the new books I've acquired and start experimenting!
