I found an excellent excuse to play with fabric and to do some stash busting! One of my husband’s ex colleague’s (ex because hubbie is now retired) has recently become a Papa . . . so what better excuse was needed to get sewing?
I had a small piece of this cute owl print (only just over 15” square) and mixed it up with some polka dots and some marbled fabric to make pinwheels.
I only had enough of the owls to make 9 blocks, so have added some extra polka dots
and for the moment the future patchwork looks like this. I’m going to turn all blocks 90° so that I have a “portait” layout when assembled. Need to do some maths to work out how wide to make my sashing & borders too. Am unsure if the parents will want to use this as a playmat or as a quilt for the cot . . . so I’ll be aiming for a standard cot-sized finish, and let the parents decide.
I’ll be back very soon (I hope) to show you the happy dance ^^
