We have come to the end of the first quarter of 2015! I had four quilty goals, and though I made tremendous progress, I only fully completed two. My first was a baby quilt, and this second is – surprise! – also for the baby!

      

I pieced the top from sampler blocks, then sandwiched it with two layers of batting scraps and a favorite IKEA print on the back. I think all that wacky batting affected the tension as I wrestle-quilted each block separately. Going back and sinking threads was also time consuming. But over all, I love it! Until the little one is ready for tummy time, it may drape over a crib or changing space to facilitate vision development. Mommy will at least love looking at it – if I can ever tear my eyes away from him once he is here!
