Work in Progress: Nursery Quilt for Grandniece
I recently lunched with my niece and her babies. This is Dani, my grandniece. She's so adorable that I was inspired to resume the quilt I started for her just before she was born.
I looked at what fabric I had still and decided to sew stacked coins for sashing. Finished the right border. I love it! It looks modern and whimsical to me. I just cut all the blocks for the left border, but I don't think I'll have enough of the medium and dark values to do the same coins at the top and the bottom. I'll probably make "stacked" long 2 1/2" wide sashing for the top and bottom borders or run to Joann's and see if I can find these Kona cottons again.
