I hope to share pictures of my version of this quilt very soon! But in the meantime, if you need to make a quick quilt gift for someone check out her book for some wonderful projects.

A new project
March is rapidly approaching and there is a new baby coming! My nephew and his wife are expecting their first child, a boy. I finally have a plan and have started cutting and sewing the baby's quilt. On Tuesday, as I was catching up on blog reading I hit on Rachel Griffith's blog ps i quilt. She is doing a review of the quilts in her book quilts made with love. Check out the one called look to the stars. That looks like a perfect baby quilt to me! So, as the snow began to fall, I drove to the quilt shop and picked up a copy of her book and a couple yards of Kona Snow ( no pun intended) and a couple 1/4 yards of blues. I made one change so far and that is to use 2" finished half-square triangles instead of 3" finished. It will make a smaller quilt if I leave the rest "as is" but I think the smaller size block will be better for a baby quilt. So, I am cutting 2 1/2" strips and using my easy angle ruler to cut already matched pairs of strips. Having put dinner in the slow cooker is giving me a little more time to work on this today!
