I did a lot of grumbling while I was putting these blocks together. I decided I was pretty sure I was NOT a quilter, too many straight lines. Cut straight lines, sew straight lines, press straight lines, repeat repeat repeat. And there's MATH involved? No, thank you. But then I finish and I'm so happy with the results that I want to start all over again and do another!
So here is my finished quilt top for the Old Red Barn Quilt Along- Check it out! There's a button over there ---------->
Without further ado, modeled by my lovely assistant/husband (see his fingertips there at the top?), here it is!
It's roughly twin-sized. Now I have to get backing fabric (I'll probably use a sheet) and... *gulp* actually quilt it. That part scares me.
Also, I had some pieces left over, so I made a small blanket for Craft Hope! There's a button for that over there ---------> as well! I love knowing that it will soon be keeping a newborn in an orphanage cozy and warm. Craft Hope is taking donations of handmade blankets, booties and beanies for newborns from now until July 25th.
