On a roll, moving onto the baby quilt

I don't seem to be able to get on top of all my deadlines.  I just made the wedding deadline, I just made the block swap deadline and now I'm down to the wire for my step-sister's baby quilt.  However, my new braid ruler is a God-send.

10 mins this evening with the rotary cutter got me these lovely stacks of chisel shapes out of 15 jelly roll strips.  I spent a long time faffing around trying to get the balance of colours and patterns right but eventually I think I got it right.  Here's the first strip put together.

The baby shower is on the 29th August so I have a week and a half to get it done.  One of these days I'll do some thing in a leisurely time frame or maybe not.  I have 6 weeks left until I go back to university and I need to squeeze all my sewing into that!

  1. That will be a pretty baby quilt!
    I feel the same about trying to squeeze to make deadlines. You'll make it! Good luck on getting all done!
