As soon as I told my dad I had the first baby quilt done he said he needed a second!
I still had almost enough blocks left over to make another one. I just made a few more and then put another quilt together.
And about that sashing seam - I realized after I finished the first quilt that part of my bias problem is that I cut the sashing fabric long ways to avoid having a seam. I had followed another quilt pattern once that cut ALL the fabric that way and didn't think much of it. Yea, wrong. It makes horrible bias cuts. Better to live with the seams, and an important quilting lesson learned!
I have already started cutting pieces for my next quilt, which is also a very special gift.
It is FINALLY snowing here, so maybe I will get time to sew. Not.
