Jigsaw Baby Quilt – December OMG Finish
December OMG and Gettin’ Jiggy
As Will Smith says in the first line of his song, “On your mark ready set let’s go.” It’s been a long time coming, but we’re gettin’ jiggy wit it for our December OMG. Patty at Elm Street Quilts hosts this wonderful linky party. This is the last one for 2018, and we don’t want to miss out. It does motivate us to get the goal complete, even without the wonderful sponsor gifts. Thank you to Patty and the sponsors for continuing to encourage us.
Jigsaw Jiggy Jag
A long, long time ago we talked about a sweet baby quilt that never was finished. Back in April, the Jigsaw flimsy was all complete. We talked about writing a pattern, using EQ8 that was purchased at the end of 2017. Fast forward to the present and it still isn’t finished although there is a draft of a pattern. I could blame it all on EQ8 (it truly is its fault) but we’ll take the high road and not throw that software under the bus. Quilting uncertainty was not an issue this time because I had a quilting plan in my mind! Instead, we say we saved the best for last. We both love this little baby quilt!
Jiggity Jiggity Jag
Anyone remember that TV show Jag? That was the commercial for it! Anyway, our December OMG is to quilt our Jigsaw baby quilt. Quilt it and bind it. If the stars are aligned, we can hope for some advancement in the completion of the free pattern for this baby quilt. Here’s a look at the quilting – a swirl in each knob and stippling in between to move from knob to knob. Also, a peek at the polka dot background fabric chosen for this quilt is on the right.
Jiggity Jigsaw Done!
Ta-da! Here is the finished Jigsaw baby quilt, and the last of our 12 UFOs for the year. We are happy to have the one in the books. I’m thinking it might just be a great quilt to swaddle a certain Baby Girl that we are still waiting for. Stay tuned for that pattern!
