Now that I had completed the two cute bundles for the double baby shower, I could get started, I mean restarted on Alex’s quilt. Right?
Because there is another baby shower. My dear friend Manveen’s cousin Tresa is pregnant with a little girl. When Manveen invited me to Tresa’s baby shower, I immediately recalled that I had so much fun going to Sukhveen’s baby shower last year. Sukhveen is Manveen’s sister and is now the proud mother of twins – Malcolm and Melanie.
I had made my first quilt for Sukhveen’s shower. I had not seen Sukhveen since the shower last year. I had not seen her twins either. And for all these reasons I just had to go to the shower. I so wanted to see the twins.
And therefore, once again, I placed Alex’s quilt away and started working (furiously) on a baby quilt for a girl. It is a good thing I had an orange/pink jelly roll on hand. Trust me, when you need a quilt in a heartbeat, a jelly roll is the way to go.
So I just started playing with the colorful strips and lo and behold – a pieced top. I am going to call it Sherbet Quilt.
Yes, it still needs to be quilted and I need better pictures showing the border and the back. But you know me - I get excited! I had to share. The shower is on 2/15/14. Some mad scrambling now to find time between work days.
I completed the Sherbet Strips quilt on Feb 15, 2014, early morning on the day of the baby shower. But bad weather prevented the journey :-) Tresa, I have your quilt. Hope to have it you soon.
Here is the completed quilt. It is 45" by 45" and was machine quilted on my Janome.
