Two weeks ago my friend Juli and I got together to work on a quilt for her DIL's baby shower in March. Juli had found some nursery rhyme fabric at a thrift store and wanted that to be the focus fabric. She sews well, but has never pieced or quilted.
I messed up her focus blocks by cutting them the wrong size and so the adventure began. She came today with her blocks - very disappointed - because the pink 9 patches were more visible than the nursery blocks. We arranged and rearranged and I think fixed the problem. Using the nursery rhyme for part of the borders helped - the supply of this fabric was very limited. So ... enjoy our fun day and what I think turned out to be a beautiful quilt top. Next time she comes we'll sandwich and I'll start her on machine quilting. This is the blind leading the blind as I know only a bubble more than she does, but ... we're having fun!
I'm facing the camera - she's on the right in my sewing/dining room.
