March's goal setting

It's the last day to link up my project for the "Lovely Year of Finishes" challenge.  I'm trying to NOT post in the last hour - I just checked, and there are 10 hours left, so I'm getting a little better...  I knew 2 or 3 days ago what my project was going to be - just didn't have time to blog about it.
So, without further ado, I give you: Disappearing 4-patch baby quilt!  I've had the blocks for this quilt cut for a few months - I left them beside my machine, and have been using them as leaders and enders.  When they were all done, I did the cutting (I only cut one set wrong!) and reassembling, and now have to make this quilt.  I'm hoping that it will at the very least look gender-neutral - I have baby girl quilts made up, but nothing for a baby boy, and I need one right away.  I don't care if it doesn't scream "baby boy", just as long as it doesn't say "little girl".  I used 2 "Wishes" charm packs, and cut Kona "Snow" yardage for the other blocks.  Here's a look at a few of the blocks:
A few of the blocks have an off-white background, but I used them if I thought that the print had enough colour to work.  I'm not sure if I'll actually need them, so I'll just hold onto them for now...
One other project that I've completed in the past week is a set of four quilts for our local NICU - they needed 24" quilts, with flannel on one side and fleece on the other side.  I had found some fun fabrics a few weeks ago, and I whipped these quilts up in a few hours.  They're just stitched all the way around the edges, then flipped inside-out, and top-stitched, so they're really easy to do.  I made 2 of each of the flannel prints, for a total of 4 quilts.  I may be able to make more another time, but just wanted to get these delivered at our guild meeting next week - and here's the pic of them: 
I also have my my completely finished Scrappy TAtW quilt - but I don't have a way to display it right now, so the pic will have to wait for another post.


  1. I like those Disappearing four patches. They look good no matter what the fabric combinations. Mine came in the mail on Friday. I love the way they all look together.

  2. Great blocks. I don't think the off-white pieces will matter at all.
