Another Hop Skip Jump Quilt-- basted!
I've been working on this one for a while-- I just need to quilt it and bind it so I can send it to a new baby in Holland! The joke is that the first quilt I made for big brother Yoav was really tiny-- about the size of a receiving blanket (that's being generous). I have since made Yoav a bigger quilt. I was going to make this one only three rows but I didn't want it to be square. I had enough fabric cut to add the fourth row so I went for it. Now it looks ridiculously large for a baby quilt. I'm going to quilt it really simply so it should only take an afternoon or two-- that is, if I ever got an afternoon or two... I'm hoping to finish the whole thing this week. The baby is at least a month old by now!
This is based on the pattern Hop Skip Jump by Denyse Schmidt (I did it freehand). This is the second one I've made.
