About 3 weeks ago I wrote about starting to prepare the fabric squares to make a baby quilt for a work colleague.
This project was set aside for a couple of weeks while I concentrated on the Boomerang bags but in the last few days I made some real progress.
I needed 180 squares and here they are all cut out and sorted in preparation for sewing.
Each block consists of 9 squares sewn together and then cut into 4 squares which are turned, re-arranged and sewn back together. Unfortunately, I do not have any photos of the step-by-step process.
The next step is to arrange the finished blocks and finally, sew them all together.
Today I finished the patchwork.
All of the fabric has been gifted or thrifted. I need to buy some batting and then assemble the quilt. I have a dark pink sheet which I bought from an op shop some time ago that I intend to use for the backing. I will make the binding from a doona cover that belonged to one of my granddaughters. It will match some of the fabric used in the patchwork.
While it is far from perfect, I know that it will be loved and appreciated.
