HQAL Update: Baby Quilt & T Quilt

This is our first posting for the year 2020 and I am

pleased to report I have a finish with the baby blanket.

I would have liked to have quilted around each of the triangles but with the time restraint to get it in the mail to the shower in time, I opted for only quilting the inside and outside of the square blocks. Originally I intended to add a small gray pompom embellishment with the border but it just didn’t have the look I had envisioned.

Simplicity won out. She’s in the mail for shower which is next Saturday.

My other hand project is the ongoing T block quilt. At our last posting I had shared I had begun stitching the blocks together. I really had no idea my direction with this but I was able to get a really good look at what was going on ~ a bunch of mish mosh un squared off mess of blocks.

Back to the drawing board, blocks squared off and sashing added,  much better. I feel like I have something worth piecing together. There will be two more rows for a total of 16 blocks. The blocks measure  15 X 15″  and the sashing is 1 1/2″ wide.

    The baby quilt is darling, and the finished T blocks look great with the sashing. I think you are on the final lap with this flimsy!

    Love the baby quilt, simpler blocks often make very effective quilts. The T quilt is coming on nicely too.

    Yay! A rare thing – a hand-quilted baby quilt. What a lovely thing to do and to send, and on time! I’m impressed. The T blocks are looking good. Are you going to hand quilt that, as well?
