WIP ......

Working on a quilt for BabyGurl's baby Ivy Rose (due in three weeks!) to have at her christening.  Of course I'll have a little extra time after she's born to complete it, but not too long.  

I found some fabric she liked quite a while ago and bought a layer cake of it.  I found this simple pattern recently.  I've made 20 blocks (I didn't realize at the time this was a 24 piece layer cake, not a 40 piece one).  I did not use the three striped pieces, nor the solid white one.  The quilt will measure at  approx 34" x 42" with 20 squares.  I actually bought two layer cakes (thank goodness) so I could make another five squares so that it will be 42" x 42".  I'm still mulling that over.  

So here we go with the crappy indoor pics.  My design wall is in the hallway .... zero natural light.

This is the fabric.  Willow, by Riley Blake.  

I also want to ask a question/advise of my fellow bloggers today .... Do any of you use plastic snaps (bibs, diaper covers etc?) What brand do you use?  Where do you purchase your snaps (and tool)?

WIP Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced


  1. I so love Willow - I don't know how it is that I've never bought any. I love what you've done with it.

  2. Such a sweet baby quilt. I never thought about making it from a layer cake. Good idea.

  3. Your quilt is going to be beautiful in the Christening photos!
    I purchased snap tape on sale at JoAnn's but have not yet used it. No tools required and it comes in colors. I ended up making a different gift than planned, but one of these days I will pull it back out!
