Baby quilt- Hourglass

I've admired from afar the baby quilt that Allison (Cluck Cluck Sew) made. I thought it was adorable. I had a turnover package just calling my name-- actually my daughter had opened it and it was in the way so I thought hey that would make a great baby quilt for a little girl (which I need for a friend at work). So I cut out a bunch of plain white triangles (wish I had had a solid apricot or light blue or light green, use it or lose it!!). I sewed the triangles to the white triangles. Then I sewed two together diagonal twice and cut the squares down the middle of the seams and I had my hourglasses and randomly sewed them together--- I have a real hard time with random. I have a couple of other projects I'm working on that are random and it is killing me.... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh

so here it is. now I'm going to attempt to quilt it on my machine with a light green minkee on the back. I just love soft backs. Wish me luck-- I'm not sure how the minkee and I will get along... we will see I may end up sending it to Mom. Don't you just love my little helper!!!

  3. Oh this is just beautiful. I have a baby quilt to make for a yet to know what flavor child. The parents don't want a typical pink or blue baby quilt. I think this will qualify! Wonderful !!!
