Light-Blue Batik Baby Quilt December OMG
It’s the last One Monthly Goal for 2020. We are ready to say adios to 2020 but not to rush through December! A light-blue batik baby quilt has been in the works or on “The List” for a while so it is well-deserving of attention. Patty at Elm Street Quilts hosts a monthly OMG linky party that we’ve been joining for over three years. It’s fairly easy – set a goal, link up at the beginning of the month, and then link up again at the end with your success.
Why a light-blue baby quilt you might ask? If you were my sister, Carol, you’d immediately say, why not!! Indeed. It is her favorite color and I really wanted to focus on some neutral gender projects. This light-blue fabric is a companion project to a dark-blue baby quilt now being used by our sweet pea, Colt. With his blue eyes, he just HAD to have this quilt.
This photo is from May when he was just a baby and not trying to be a big boy like his cousins. You will find the same charm pack pieces in this light-blue version, although they seem to look completely different by changing to the lighter border.
Light-Blue Baby Wishes
We are expecting a new baby in the family in March, and we know it’s a boy. Although we’ll be making a special edition quilt just for him, it never hurts to have an extra quilt at the ready.
The nine-patch blocks have been counted and thrown on the design wall randomly in a random order of sorts.
Rows have been sewn so we’ll begin to join them into a quilt top. Borders will be added using the light-blue batik. All of these steps plus layering, quilting, and binding will be accomplished as our December OMG project.
A Light-Blue Recap
Thanks to Patty, our December OMG will be to completely finish the light-blue batik baby quilt. It would be fun to get Colt to model for us as he did above but I cannot make any promises. Maybe if I bribe him with some Puffs or good treats of some sort . . . We will be linking up with Patty and this will also be a fourth-quarter finish-along project.
