I have a problem. I’m pretty sure this problem is prevalent in the quilting/crafting community. F.A.D.D. Fabric Attention Deficit Disorder. I can’t stop looking at fabric, buying fabric, getting inspired by other quilts, and wanting to start new ones. After I made my huge mistake this weekend and messed up all of my flying geese, I was back at square one. So, of course that meant start new projects. Because that makes sense.
Therefore, today’s WiP is a bit scatter brained. Aren’t they all?
I still have to make my flying geese, but I have them all cut, pinned, and marked.
And I’m turning this stack of mistakes:
Into these cute little guys:
And, now, for my new quilt. I’ve been completely inspired by Blue Elephant Stitches Granny Square quilt tutorial. There’s a special little girl I know who’s turning two this summer and I wanted to make her something extra girly – I’m calling this Girly Explosion. My friend said to just call it Estrogen. Basically, I’ve thrown together any girly fabric I can find.
Her summer birthday gives me plenty of time to find more scraps and colorways to finish this baby. Which is good because in going through my fabrics to make the blocks, I have realized that I have a desperate need for quality yellows, oranges, and purples. Good thing I’m going to the quilt store tomorrow…
Hi, my name is Ashley and I have F.A.D.D.
So, here’s the help I need from you. If I’m making this quilt for a two year old, what size should it be finished? I’d like her to use it for a while, but I realize it probably won’t need to go to college with her… I’d appreciate any/all suggestions!
It’s funny, everyone that has seen this layout likes a different block. Even the ones that I’m not digging as much have supporters. Here’s my favorite:
Next week I hope that I have the last of these blocks finished. 8 more to go…
Happy WiP Wednesday and Happy quilting, friends! Thanks for stopping by!
