I am having trouble being patient this week. I am so anxious to finish up my Innocent Crush quilt. As you can see, I decided to do use a meandering pattern, and it sure takes a lot of thread! I only had a half a spool of gray thread, so as soon as I decided to quilt it this way, I quickly ordered some gray Gutermanns online. But a week later, it is still not here. Sigh.
In the meantime, I've pulled out the string blocks I started last spring when I was still pregnant with Finley. While I was planning her nursery, I originally thought I'd design her room around this line (Hope Valley by Denyse Schmidt). Then I saw Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow and all my plans went out the window. The berry palette was my favorite, just perfect for a baby girl's nursery, and I ended up making this quilt instead.
I'm excited to be working on these blocks again. I am hoping to make a twin, and it will go on Finley's bed when she outgrows her crib. The walls in the room she will move into are a soft gray, and I think this will look perfect in there.
Okay, off to get a little sewing in while she is snoozing.
