Good progress

Just one more row to add

I was home alone today and spent a lot of it breaking the back of my quilt for a baby. I cut new sized units for the top part and completed that section by lunch. Then I sewed the other squares in sections. To help me keep track of placement I ironed the squares onto freezer paper, a trick a friend learnt in a Houston class. I am going to leave off the last row as it seems big enough. I have also just decided to have it longarmed as I think this will improve the quilt though sledgehammer to crack a nut comes to mind. Tomorrow I'll start on letters and appliqueing the hands.

The baby quilt is coming along so nicely. I'll bet it will be a much-treasured gift.
