I know I am not the first person to start a baby quilt and never get it completed in time for the arrival of the new baby. This quilt however is hanging on the wall in my studio. I started it over 12 years ago (that tells you how old that “baby” is now). It was for a co-workers second child. Even though I worked on it during my lunch break, I never told him I was making it for him. Good thing, since he never got it.
Several things happened that stalled my progress. My lunch schedule changed at work and I was taking a shorter lunch, I was running out of fabric and I knew I wouldn’t be able to find more. I was hand piecing and it was taking longer than I thought. The baby’s birth day came and went. Then the first birthday. So the quilt was put away. Until a few years ago. I decided it was time to finish it. This time by machine. I added the blue and green to make it larger. It finishes at 30×38.
I am linking up with “Throwback Thursday” over at Quiltin Jenny’s site.
Maybe there is a child out there that will need this quilt someday, in the meantime it is waiting on my wall.
How many baby quilts have you started and not finished in time?
Enjoy the Journey, Jackie
