Tuesday is for…

A patchwork baby blanket for little Olive (who we’ll be meeting in the coming weeks!!)to be precise! 
I should have started many, many months ago, but in my usual form, here I am 5 days away from the baby shower with nothing but fabric squares (which I only cut out last night/this morning! eeps!)

Now, the only “quilt” I’ve ever made was the patchwork puppy quilt I made a couple of weeks ago…
So I thought I would step things up a notch, especially after seeing some gorgeous quilts on both Rachel and Holly‘s blogs!

I started mapping out my squares, only to find I didn’t have a space large enough to lay them out on…
 so I  drew a sketch, coloured it in and hoped for the best…
 (I’m sure this was after about 7 hours of sewing…including many breaks – I’m easily distracted! hehe)

But finally, 13 hours after I began (and in the wee hours of wednesday morning…), I finished!

Well, at least the quilt top is now finished!
I’m so in love with it – I want one for me! πŸ˜‰ hehehe
What projects are you working on?
