That's kind of all I feel I have to say today. I've not worked on my second doll quilt for Christmas. I just can't get into it. I don't know if it's because I can't decided whether to use an old block I have, or to break up one of the charm packs for it, but I just have no inspiration or motivation.
I think I'd use one of the ones that can't go into a larger quilt, because, well....these were made quite a while ago, and the seams look to be off some. At least two of the blocks, but then I could have been just using up scraps at the time to finish them. Or maybe I was asleep when I made them. I don't remember. They are many, many blocks ago. If I do use on I think I'll just add white borders, or maybe a white and then a pink polka dot I have in my stash. I do have to decide soon.
I did manage to cut up my perfectly good layer cake for the nephew's quilt.
Where I had 40 nice 10" squares, I now have 160 5" squares. I'm waiting for a charm pack, which only has 35 squares, in the mail, and I should be able to make this thing about 51x58 or 48x63, depending on the rows and if my math is at all correct. I think 15x13 or 14x14 rows will work best, and I should be able to get away with only adding a square or two of other fabric. It's harder to figure out the sizing when I'm not dealing with something like squares or rectangles. I don't know why but my layer cake (which came from e-bay) didn't have the cardboard back so I will either have to swipe a charm pack one or do something else to make the template for the...you guessed it! Tumblers! lol. I promise this will be the last one for awhile.
I love the colours in this line. Very boy without being jarring. This quilt doesn't really have a time date, seeing as baby is already 10 months old or something like that. I haven't even met him.
I know one of the reasons I'm so not feeling things is I'm __(insert emotion here)___ about Little Bit being with bio dad for Christmas, and the all of next week, and the fact that I have to bury the rest of my son's remains on Monday that the hospital (illegally/immorally/unethically) kept after his autopsy. I'll be glad for it to be done but nothing can fix that I've had to relive all of this. If you wish you can read more about it here and a bit more here, if you don't, don't feel bad. This is my quilt blog but every once in awhile life sneaks in here too, just ignore if you please.
