It Is What It Is.

Hi There!

Well, if you've been following my blog posts, then you KNOW I was in a frenzy to get this
Blue Bow Tie Baby Blanket
- sorry, I had to make it rhyme - "QUILT" finished, ASAP!

"Why?", you ask.

Well.... just because.

I have TONS of other projects I want to get to!

As soon as I got home, yesterday after work, I started working on the final borders of my Bow Tie Quilt. Gilbert snapped a picture of me and although I would have appreciated if he could have "Photo-Shopped" me into a much SLIMMER person.....

"It Is What It Is",
as my friend Frummie would say.


And IMMEDIATELY after finding a navy blue back for this quilt, I picked up a no-name brand, with few repeats, Jelly Roll.... cut up some of my own stash fabric that matches the colors in this jelly roll for more repeats and started making a Lasagna or Jelly Roll Strip Quilt....

Here's a blog on how to do this quilt.

And yet another example of this quilt.

Yes, yet another baby quilt.

No pictures yet.

Stay Tuned.

I've seen those quilts. I just watched the video and one lady was done in 35 minutes!!!! This is a great way to make a quick quilt for a gift. I think I would cut my own strips ... looks fun.
