It’s been a long time since I last blogged. I didn’t have any finished projects to share and I didn’t think my last minute bee-block sewing required posting, if I posted about it I might have run out of energy to post them in the actual mail.
This is a quilt I was working on for a long time. It’s for some dear friends who recently welcomed their second baby, a little boy. I had the pattern and fabric back in…April? Maybe even sooner. I wanted to make Elizabeth Hartman’s New Wave pattern for a long time, so I diligently cut out all my wedges, laid out the plan and got to work sewing. Eventually I realized that I had cut 15 rows rather than 12. 15 wouldn’t work (long and skinny anyone?) so then I edited my 15 down to 12, but that meant changing the order (and subsequent sashing). I spent an hour picking stitches but then never wanted to look at it again. So it sat a bit, I actually considered scrapping the whole thing and starting again. I’m glad I didn’t! I love the way it turned out.
Backing was simple (pieced twice because of a miscalculation (doh!) and I kept the binding simple as well. I hope Baby V grows to love this quilt.
Summer is settling down and I’m making more time to sew so I hope I can share more soon.
