The quilting on the cool toned quilt is coming along nicely. I'm probably half finished so I am hoping to have it ready for binding by the end of the weekend and then I'll have to decide what colours to use for the binding. I have quite a lot of solid fabric left over from the single bed quilt I am making for J so I'll choose one of those. J's quilt definitely took a back seat when I started fretting about how it was going to turn out. I'm feeling much more philosophical about it now. I love the fabrics and I really like the pattern so there's a good chance I'll like the end result. Even if I don't, I am sure that Jem will like it and if it is totally trashed after a few years of use I won't be heartbroken about it ;-)
Sewing these stroller quilts for my soon-to-be nieces or nephews makes me think I should also make one for C.I've been thinking about reds and whites for hers but after seeing the beautiful LOVE quilts that Lazy Gal and Quiltville have made I am tempted to add a few LOVE blocks. That's blatantly ripping off someone else's idea so I should be careful how I approach it for fear of doing the wrong thing. I don't know how all this blog etiquette works yet. I won't be starting that project until I have started something for G though so I have some time to figure it all out. (A quick email to Lazy Gal should do the trick.) G has been waiting very patiently for me to get around to doing something for her so she is definitely next on the list!
