The Central Park quilt top is almost finished. The pattern is Geese in the Park by KarrieLyne from Freckled Whimsy for Moda Bake Shop. I found this pattern a year ago when I fell in love with Kate Spain’s Central Park fabric, and I decided to just get the quilt kit for KarrieLyne’s quilt and go with it. And then it sat in the sewing room for a year. Oops.
Anyway. The quilt top is almost finished now. Sewing takes about a million times longer now…I have learned that I can make and eat one bowl of oatmeal and sew and press exactly two rows during a 30 minute nap. I have also learned that my child naps for longer than 30 minutes if I hold her for the entire nap, which allows me to accomplish exactly nothing during that time…but the cuddles are really nice. (Daycare claims she napped for 1 hour and 40 minutes in the crib one day last week. Daycare either lies or is magic.)
Taking pictures at 11:00 pm is kind of difficult. Taking pictures at 11:00 pm while trying not to wake the baby or include the cats in the photo session is even more difficult.
As usual, squaring up the blocks was totally worth the pain since most of my points lined up without too much effort. There are a few that aren’t perfect, but those were really due to me not paying attention while I was sewing.
It needs borders, and then the top is done! I’m not sure how I want to quilt it. This will be the biggest quilt I’ve quilted so far (roughly 68″x72″), so I’m kind of nervous about it. Hopefully inspiration – and confidence – will strike soon.
I’m linking up to Work in Progress Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!!
