I finished up this quilt - baby quilt 3 of 6 for the year - last week. It's for Scott's cousin who just had a new baby boy. I couldn't get a really good picture but this should give you the idea. It was a super easy quilt that I found here. Not super in love with fabric that I picked but it went with the bedding. It just seems so dark. Maybe that'll help mask the inevitable things baby will end up adding. . .
And then my three Farmer's Wife blocks and a fail. Remember how I wanted to do four a week? And remember how I said that I had to make 34 extra blocks to make this a king sized quilt? I had this "brilliant" idea last week that I was come up with different blocks instead of duplicating what was already in the quilt. 34 blocks shouldn't be that hard to come up with in a year, right? And I thought, hmmm, I'm doing a kaleidoscope quilt. Maybe I can shrinky dink down the quilt block that I'm doing over there for this quilt. So I did the math (obviously not my strong suit) and I reduced that pattern. And I cut. And I thought I came up with a pretty cute block (if you don't pay attention to how the points don't all line up in the center). But it looked a little. . . little. I measured that baby and I have a 5" square. 5". Which would finish at 4.5". Probably not going to work with my 6.5" squares unless I put a border on it. (There's a thought - if I can get past those wayward points.) So for now, I'm calling it a fail. We'll see if there is some life in that girl down the road. Without further ado or explanation, here is my submission for the week -
