Been working on a new baby quilt pattern. A long time ago I was a member of  little quilting group . So long I forgot the name of our little group. It has since disbanded and we have gone on our little quilty way. One of the exchanges we did was to fill a little metal lunch box with some our favorite quilting things. We drew names like a secret pal and gave the box to that person. Mine was filled with these amazing little 1.5 by 3 inch rectangles in glorious spring pastel colors. I had no idea what I was going to do with them but I knew if I waited long enough they would tell me. Well, after so many years they finally talked to me and no I was not on any recreational drugs.........

 French braid baby quilt! After doing a lot of math, I came up with how many columns and how long to make them.

   lots of soft pinks, yellows, lavenders, greens, blues and purples
I decided I needed 6 columns of braids mixed with 5 columns of a tone on tone print. 6 braided strips are done, just waiting on the material I have ordered to work on it some more. I thinking this will be a fabulous quilt when I get it done. I have a possible Gran Niece coming in Oct. This will be perfect for her. If it is a boy, I got something else in mind.

until next time

Keep On Stitch'n On!

I just love the pastels they remind me of spring. I've been itching to make a braid quilt too.
