I have shown this before - in a post I did way back in February of this year. I mentioned then that I had wanted to try out the block. It was a freebie on Connecting Threads website and you can find it HERE. I had some light blue fabric given to me by Mary-Frances and a pale blue fat quarter that had the word 'Baby' on it. I figured I would just get the quilt done and put it away for some future baby. Well, apparently, it will be a boy and now is the time to finish this.
This is the border treatment I am planning. I have not yet measured the light blue fabric but I am hoping that there is enough there. The fabric is doubled in the photo. I am not keen on going out to purchase more fabric since I want to use up what I have. The white in the photo is really interfacing. I was in a hurry just to get this photo done so I could see what it would look like and the interfacing was a handy white to use. I will, of course, be using white broadcloth.
I have added two more hats to my preemie collection bringing the total to seven. The one on right was done last night with double-pointed needles and I have Ulla to thank for it. I had never used double-pointed needles before and she sent me a link to a YouTube video showing just how easy it was. In the video, one knits in the beginning tail of yarn so once one finishes knitting the hat, one need only to weave in the ending tail. Now I have to go look for more free patterns on the internet. I do like "free."
Once again, I will be linking up with The Needle and Thread Network. If you are in dire need of inspiration or would like to see what other Canadian bloggers doing out there, go take a look.
