Yet again, I have been sucked into an impromptu quilt along on Instagram ;D It's kinda not hard to suck me into making a quilt... I am using the quilting as a distraction from the wedding chores to be done :) It chills me out and makes me feel like the world is still a normal place ;)
I've had the Happy Tones layer cake from Michael Miller for a few months now. It has been screaming to make it into something :) I used a little of it to make this tote for a friend's daughter for Christmas. Bogged HERE.
I thought it would work well with this fun pattern.
I modified the pattern from the one the ladies are using on IG so that I could use a 5" square for the corner blocks instead of the 5.5" block that everyone is using on IG.
These are the cutting measurements I am using:
4- 5" blocks for the print making the "X" (4 different coordinating prints)
8- 2.5" white squares for the corner triangles of the "x"
1- 7.5" x 2.5" solid for the "+"
2- 3" x 2.5" solid for the "+"
4- 2.5" x 2.5" print for the ends of the "+" sign (all four squares are the same print)
I am making this quilt for one mf my daughters bff who is expecting her first child next month. We are throwing her a shower on the 9th of February. The shower was supposed to be today, but with our super fun, SUPER FAST wedding, we bumped it to next month ;)
I have 6 more blocks to go ;)
ps- I am not sure I will get to work on this tomorrow :( I really have to make the wedding cake and 16#'s of cream cheese frosting for it :) I also HAVE to go shopping for a dress for me to wear :( I REALLY hate shopping, I mean I REALLY HATE IT! Couldn't I just wrap myself in a quilt?)
