    Quilt for baby shower

    I have a baby shower to go to tomorrow, so today I started her quilt. I know I procrastinate but I am super busy lately, and work better under pressure. ( I did have all the fabrics already)
    So I kept it simple.
    I just did a basic D9 ---easy but looks harder to non-quilters
    I finished it in just under 5 hours... and it is in the wash getting ready for tomorrow.

    Looks great!!!! I too am a last minute gal but I doubt I could have gotten done in five hours - the binding would have taken me quite awhile lol. how did you quilt it - stitch in ditch maybe?

    I wouldnt tell them how long it took - looks as though you spent days on it lol

    5 hours??????? It takes me that long to get the fabric picked out and cut, then maybe a month or so to get it done, yes i'd say that is awsome to be able to get such a beautiful quilt done in that short of time.

    It's a great quilt and I'm sure baby will love it, as well as Mom. I too work better under pressure, like sewing the binding on a table runner at a craft show yesterday, however, I sold the table runner.

    Thanks everyone... the shower is in 2 hours so we will see if they like it then. It is snuggle flannel so it is nice and warm and cozy.
    Margo a D9 (or D9p) is a Disappearing 9 patch.... super easy and quick to do. sew large 9 patches then cut them in quarters and flip them around.

    Very soft & pretty colors. Your rendition of the D9p works well in a baby quilt with the right fabrics.

    I just love your baby quilt katvert! You did a super job on it! I am such a slow poke seamstress. I would never been able to complete that quilt in the time you did.

    Wow, that is pretty. BUT 5 HOURS, are you kidding me? It would take me that long just to lay it out.

    That is fast. It is a beautiful quilt. You do good work under pressure. If I try to do something in a hurry everything that can go wrong does.
