Baby Blankets Always Win! HQAL

Hello friends! Three weeks have gone by and it is time to share my Hand Quilt Along progress again. I wish I could say that I have finished another 20 or so English Paper Pieced blocks for my Quatro Color Quilt, but I cant.

I have finished four. Yep, that’s it.

Well, I also organized the rest of my papers into groups . I think I have enough to finish the blocks. I hope I hope I hope! I’m keeping my fingers crossed:)

Now, why have I finished so few? Well, my evening sewing has taken a turn to baby crochet, yea!! My daughter in law is expecting baby number two at the end of February. She asked for a green blanket, but didn’t pick a pattern so I am free to let my creative juices flow. And oh, the flow!

I have decided on a highly textured sensory blanket that my SWEET new little grand baby can put his little fingers through.

The yarn is Soft Secret Yarn Bee in Avocado and is so so soft. I tried the actual “baby yarns” but the light texture just didn’t match the sensory theme.

I am designing this little blanket as I go and plan to write the pattern when I am finished. It is a Textured Stripey Sensory Blanket.

I am just loving all of the fun stitches. Its hard not to run my hands over and over it too!

Well, that about does it for me . Thank you so much for dropping by today. If you have a moment, I hope you will hop on over and see what the other hand quilters are stitching up.

Until next time!
