Once upon a time ago, I started a hand appliqued project for my baby (I knew I was going to have one, I just did not know how long it would take to get there!) - that ufo has been stewing for a very long time in my "stewdio" (& my apartment before that). Lets classify that one as unrealistic.
I have another fused applique with hand button holeing project, but this one has always been a "good" quilt. (Kind of like the good china that you only use every so often.) I know that that makes no sense, but there you have it. Besides, it is only a bit farther along that the other one. Lets classify that one as not the kind of baby quilt that I am talking about.
You may or may not know, that I am a flickr fanatic. So I get to see a lot of inspiration - not much of is makes me say, I want to make something like that for my baby, which is good, because I have at least 3 flickr projects for big quilts.
Many ideas have floated through my head as possibilities - but I am using Minkies cousin as the back, so I will probably be tieing or big stitch quilting, so many of the tiny pieces ideas are out the window & probably a tad bit unrealistic. With that said, I am also not interested in just squares randomly sewn together or 1 big log cabin block...
As the end of this post I am back to thinking, I want something green/yellow or a rainbow. & I've got not much beyond that figured out - except that they will both be about 60 inches square.
BTW If you were having a baby, I would have NO problem figuring out what to do.
