Baby Quilt Top finish


SugarBlockClub2016 July Block

I had 2 of these blocks on the design wall for months ... poor little orphans.  So I decided to not be too picky with colors matching perfectly and dug into the stash/scrap yet again.

It turned out looking pretty cute.  Now I have two quilt tops ready for finishing and then on to the donation pile.

Finishing up at 34" x 42"

One of the churn dash centres is made from leftover "banana" fabric :)  I don't think the quilt's future little owner will mind the  "scrappiness"

Also finished another BOM block for the Sugarblock Club

I've been leaving an extra 1/4 inch around the outside of the paper pieced blocks  until all the blocks are done

... a finished baby quilt top

38.5 x 45.5"

I started out making turquoise log cabin blocks from my stash and scraps, but began to run low.... Orange stash to the rescue.   They go well together and could be for either  a baby girl or boy.

Planning on an orange border and a light grey minky backing, but for now it will be put on the back burner.  I need to stop procrastinating and get working on a requested T-shirt quilt.  I have never made one, and am a bit nervous about it !
