I’m done with this “simple” baby quilt. I say simple with a snort because this quilt and I seemed to fight each other every step of the way. (perhaps my looming birthday is spreading it’s bad karma to make sure I recognize that I am another year older). I had such high hopes for this dear little fabric; maybe that’s why I’m disappointed with this finish. You may recall that I initially had planned to do a Schoenrock cross quilt and decided after doing a test block that I did not have enough fabric to make this fabric shine and showcase the little red riding hood girls. I probably should have done another star ala Jeni Baker of In Color Order but I wanted this quilt to be really girly with big loopy flowers quilted throughout. It wasn’t meant to be though what with my fmq headaches. So I made do with straight line quilting.
The stats: 36 x 41

This is my first finish for 2013 (and it’s June…) I’ve got a lot to do if I want to get all that I have planned for this year done.
