My plan for 2013 was to take a break from bees to finish quilts that I’ve started but that didn’t happen. My quilts are all in various stages of completion still. I didn’t really sew anything in 2013 once my baby arrived. That is, I didn’t really sew anything until November when I started making these cute little 9-patch blankets for my friend to use with her photography business.
I ended up making 14 of these little guys. I really enjoyed it, and wanted to make more, but ran out of time. That is, I have time but now that I have 3 kids it is spread out a little thinner than it has been in the past.
I tried taking some pictures of these blankets, but the settings in my camera were a bit off, and I couldn’t figure out how to adjust them.
In this blanket, the yellow polka dots are all the same fabric. But in the photo it looks like sunshine yellow & squash orange. So strange.
I think this little red, gray, and white gem is one of my favorites.
Here is a composite shot of the first 6 blankets I made, side to side. I think it would be a pretty cute blanket for someone’s toddler bed:
One of the most fun parts of this project was picking out fun bright chevron & dots & solid fabric colors that I might not ordinarily buy for myself. There really is something about fresh uncut fabric all ready to go that is just so rejuvenating.
