Pinwheel Baby Quilt
The colours didn't approve of that plan. When I laid it out and tried to get it to work, it just didn't happen. These are the Taffy Tonga Treats from Timeless Treasures (the Treats link goes to the strip version, but I started with 10" squares). And when I tried to pull out colours to make the pattern work as a square, it just didn't seem right. So, the square is a rectangle.
I also considered trying some fancy-schmancy, non-stitch in the ditch quilting. One of these days I'll be courageous enough to try it (although I'm wondering if I need a new foot for my machine before I'll be successful).
And I have a pile of excess HSTs! I'm not sure whether I should make another baby quilt in preparation for the next birth that comes along or to play with it and make something else completely. We shall see.
