A Girl and Her Japanese Quilt
Last week we went in for an ultrasound and found out that we are having a healthy baby girl! This will be girl #5 for us. My husband is hopelessly outnumbered with all his little girls, wife, 6 hens and a female cat. Poor guy. ;)
But now that we know that it is a girl, I can officially start sewing baby things! The only problem is that I am not in the mood for sewing with a bunch of pink. I want to use all the special fabric that I have been saving. Great idea, huh? Only it happens to be gender neutral/boyish. Oh well, people never seem to pick up on gender clues anyway. I don't know how many times I have taken my baby girls out all dressed in pink and someone congratulates me on my baby boy. ?!?
Anyway...here is baby quilt #1. I made it with about half of the 5 inch Japanese Charms I received in two swaps last year. It is made out of 4 super-sized granny square blocks. It was relatively fast and easy to piece. The slowest/funnest part was laying out the squares and rearranging them until I was pleased with the layout.
The blue block. I love the frogs, fruit and owls!
And there it is! Baby Girl #5's Japanese Squares blanket!
I'm linking up with Amy's One Thing, One Week Challenge. My goal was to finish this quilt top and I did it!
