HOW DO YOU DO BABY IN BLUE?

Have you been waiting with bated breath? OK, probably not, but here it is just the same. The completed top for the new baby boy that is joining our family! It measures 50 inches square, plenty big for a boy to grow into. I have it all packed up to go see a very nice quilter.


This was a fun quilt to construct. I fussed with the dimensions to get the stars and nine patch blocks a good size for cutting and construction. I try to avoid measurements that include "3/16ths" or "1/8th". I would much rather cut an eighth inch larger and trim to perfection.
This is the end of my Prairie Paisley, except for small pieces which I will now feel free to cut into with wild abandon.
Hope your day is filled with smiles!

Oh I love this great quilt for a boy. You are a master of your Art.

Next, I want to see some reckless abandon.

What a beautiful quilt! I am like you--I don't like those 8th or 16th measurements either. In fact, I don't even think they are on my ruler. Just kidding. LOL
