My work yesterday
I was pretty productive at my day long retreat yesterday. I finished 17 blocks. It went together very quickly. Big problem -- I do not have enough of the white on white background fabric. I thought I did......I guess I should have measured and calculated, but that is just too much like work. I think I can get more, I am going to be short only a small amount - maybe 3 blocks. I could calculate the amount I am going to be short - but that sounds too much like work!! But I will figure it out and hopefully my LQS has some in stock. I think it is a pretty common WOW pattern. I passed out little scraps at my retreat and I do have a bunch of quilters looking through their stash for me.
I think that the blocks are too big for a baby quilt. I think I would have done it in 2 inch square instead of 2 1/2, which is what was in the pattern. It is going to finish up at 55" by 55" (provided I find more WOW fabric!) But it is going to be a pretty quilt so maybe if I can find more fabric I will buy enough to make one in 2 inch squares as well -- since I still have a small mountain of 30's fabrics.
