|Isn't Baby cute? (Well, I think so!)|
|Isn't his eye just the brightest?|
I think if I ever redo Baby, his skin fabric will be a little less busy, let some more of his details show through. Maybe a gentler batik... but this is the one I found and liked. :) So I ran with it. And on the whole, I am pleased with how Baby's First Steps came out.
This weekend it's off to a couple of quilt stores with Baby's First Steps to see if any of them would be interested in selling the pattern (if they think there's a market for this style).
And I start working on the next quilt, which is considerably more "serious" - no wandering giant monsters. It's a little more tricky - fewer squares and more odd shapes, but tesselated, so there's really only two shapes. It's got color variants already, but the first one, and the one I am truly looking forward to, is the Boston Molasses Flood quilt.
So, between the Boston Molasses Flood quilt, and house hunting, and all that other stuff, there's not much time to be bored. I am almost done with the only "I'm bored" project - just one seam left to do and I can post my pics. It's a stuffed pumpkin from a pattern from... well, it looks like the 1970's, really. I got the pattern at an estate sale, so there's no telling.
