WIP- My First Quilt!

AJ had a T-Ball game this morning, muuuuch too early for momma. But it turned out to be a beautiful, breezy morning and the game itself went along a little less chaotic than usual. Now that the kids have gotten a little used to it, we were a lot more organized.

I came home to continue work on my FIRST QUILT! The pattern I bought calls for 12 blocks (3 across and 4 down) but I'm going to extend the rows and make 20 blocks for a toddler sized quilt. I'm going to use it to drape over my living room sofa. Here's a little sneak peek!






I'm using the "Just Wing It" collection by Momo for Moda. Isn't it perfect for Spring!? I am really loving these blocks. They're going to eventually be sashed with some Kona Snow. Is that the correct terminology?? Lol I'm learning as I go! I had originally chosen another pattern to start off with, but I think this pattern showcases the entire fabric line a lot better.


I am seriously loving the process of making this quilt. I am working at my own pace with my mind completely clear and stress-free. It is so relaxing! I can't wait to get this quilt top finished.

Thanks to all the ladies that have been helping me along the way!! I'd be SO LOST without you all! Have a great weekend everyone!
