I think this baby quilt is possessed!
Baby quilt #1 is done and delivered - have yet to hear if they liked it or not - I asked Todd if Matt opened it at the firehouse - nope he took it home cause his wife would kill him. Ok then.
So I start in on baby quilt #2 - and am not getting ANYWHERE with it. Pulled it out of my stash last week - not very big - all I had was the center section done. I still have several yards of several of the firetruck prints, start putting a border on from one of the prints. It just didn't look right - too busy. So my seam ripper and I became good friends. Found the plain red - which I believe is leftover from Tyler's quilt. Much better. I think I have enough of the red, so I make the borders extra wide (I like baby blankets and quilts to be BIG - so nothing tiny comes out of this house! - this quilt is going to be about 51 x 58 when done).
Oops - I am out of red for the backing. And I don't have enough of the firetruck fabrics to back it in one of them. And I'm loath to use all of my firetruck fabrics as I'm in the midst of making a whirlygiggle bed quilt for Tyler out of the firetrucks.
So I cut the batting - and hopefully either tomorrow or Thursday I'll get to either the quilt shop near where I work or a JoAnn fabrics somewhere to buy something for the back. This baby's father is a firefighter and a cop - maybe I can find some yardage of policeman fabric to put on the back????
The fire department is burning down a house on Saturday - for practice. My hope is to have it done by then so Todd can take it with him. If not, it will get to fire practice next Tuesday.
Wonder what else I can get done tonight since my plans to finish this one have been shot all to heck?
Have a great evening!
