My cousin became a grandmother for the first time in September (of last year). I decided to make the baby a quilt. Chose the pattern, purchased and prepped the fabric and haven't touched it since then.
Today I cut all of the pieces and have started piecing it together. Not a difficult pattern, but I love it. I'm hand piecing it, which is actually my preference and will probably hand quilt it as well. Here's my progress thus far.
The pictures aren't that great, but this is the center portion of the quilt and I will be appliqueing the letter "J" to the center of it in a shade close to the dark pink in the roses.
This is actually the first quilt I have pieced in about four years. Way too long. Time to hit the fabric stash with a vengeance. Cutting out the pieces and sewing them have reminded me of how much I love to quilt.
