Baby quilt pieced!

Sunday Morning Happenings .... Jill actually sews!

Max (above) and Masiy (below) have been great. Max is squished between my thigh and the chair arm as I type.

And I finished piecing this baby quilt. I started it last night around 10 or so and had the center almost put together before calling it a night about 1:30. I finished the center and got the border cut before heading out to church. When I got back, I added the borders, mitered!

The backing will be the print that's in the border. It was an easy FQ friendly pattern that I picked up at the quilt store liquidation store I stopped by the other week. I had purchased the butterfly print some time ago. I pulled it out of my stash this week and started grabbing coordinating tone-on-tones to use. One more top done! It will go to one of the new baby girls at church.

UPDATE ~ I just found the pattern designer online. Her name is Tammy Tadd. Here is her website, her blog, and the link to the pattern, Fatty-Fatty 2x4. The only change that I made was that in the original pattern, her small 4-patches are the same 2 colors throughout. I alternated the blue and the green to bring in more colors from my focus fabric. Check out her site - she has lots of great patterns. I'm going to have to keep my eyes peeled for her stuff when I look for new patterns.

You're just sewing up a storm what a great quilt. I just knew the Ninja's would love you.

You had a very productive weekend! And thanks for the Max and Maisy pictures too!

Hmmm... I guess that is a hint from Jennifer that I should add more dog pics to my blog? I can handle that!! :)

And yes, I DO sew!!! In spurts I guess. Although, I'm now in the mood to really get some things done! :)

Very cute quilt!
