This past week I broke out the Baby Accuquilt Go and a new die for 60 degree triangles. I have two baby quilts to make this year, down from four in 2016. I don’t know the genders yet, although I know one couple is having a gender reveal party soon. I think I have a fifty-fifty chance of getting at least one girl. This quilt is done in soft peaches, tan and white with a bit of yellow for excitement. I have not decided what to do for borders yet. I have a bunch of HSTs that I cut from the scraps off the Go die. I thought I would use them around the edges, but first I have to square up the top by adding in some half triangles. I have some white Kona that matches nicely, may just do that.
In knitting news, I broke down and started a new project. Judy at Patchwork Times posted about a new Ravelry club in On the Needles , The Shawl Society ll, Curious Handmade, by Helen Stewart. I found two skeins of Madeline Tosh Merino Light in my stash to use, the color way is Whiskey Barrel, the pattern is called Fairy Hill. So far I have 29 rows done, after one sitting. This pattern is written differently than what I am used to, but I like it. It’s more like a table or spread sheet, and at the end of each row, there is a stitch count. I have done lace knitting before, but it frustrates me to no end not knowing how many stitches I should have on my needles at any given row.
Linking up with Judy at Patchwork times today for Design Wall Monday today. Since this is a post mostly about baby quilts, I’m linking up with Michelle’s Romantic Triangle for “Let’s Make Baby Quilts” too.
