I feel like I’ve made a lot of progress in the last week. I finally got around to finishing up the baby quilt for my new nephew, Huxley. I also made him another little gift, but it’s a surprise, so I won’t be sharing that one with you until after I get to give it to him.

Plus, I’ve gotten the top pieced for this month’s Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism challenge quilt.  This month’s challenge was the 9-patch, which is super simple to put together.

I’ve also got the embroidery I want to add picked out, and hope to get the embroidery and quilting done later this week.

What are you working on this week?

    1. Thanks Alison! Orange was one of the 2 colors I had yet to use for the Focus Through the Prism project, and this month seemed like a good time to use it. I just hope I can come up with a design for next month. My quilt will need to be yellow, and I won’t know what the block is until the 1st of the month.

    1. Thanks so much, Lorna! I also made him a matching taggie blanket, which I’ll be sharing tomorrow. It was my first taggie blanket and I’m thrilled with how it came out.

  1. What size is that orange 9-patch? It looks like a crib quilt from here. I’ve noticed that a lot of the patterns I get from quilting lists tend to be “mini” size–almost like placemats. What does one do with mini quilts? I can understand they are more satisfying in a way, since they obviously go a lot faster than a full size double bed quilt…but what do folks do with em?

    1. This “mini quilt” will finish at 20×20-inches. They make great wall hangings, table decor (I sometimes use them on the center of the table with a bowl of fruit on top), as quilts for using in a car seat, or for little hands to carry around (sort of like the taggie blanket I’ll be sharing tomorrow). I hope to eventually display all of mine on a wall in my house. I’ll probably use decorative clothes pins and hang them on a line attached to the wall.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Lynn. The 9-patch will stay this size, as it’s for a mini challenge. It just needs some cute embroidery, and I’ll add it to my collection from the Focus Through the Prism challenges.
