Fish Scale Baby Quilt

…and almost a full month slipped by with lots of visiting family and not much sewing. But I am back with what caused my “writers block” . I made some fish scale  pillows and loved them so much I expanded the idea to a baby quilt.

All that top stitching was a total pain. The half circles puckered like crazy even with everything stabilized with heat-n-bond. I admit giving up a few times and in the end all that stitching took me weeks to finish because I was so annoyed.

And then the terrible happened. I washed it blithely thinking it would fray just a bit here and there. But sadly, tons of fraying and I think it will fall apart completely if it is washed again. Wall hanging I guess.  Disappointment.

I pieced the back with some of my favorites. And now I am moving on .

Time to start some new projects. Gotta start fresh. One month until Christmas so I will whip up some presents. sigh.

    • I would love to rejoin, but the meetings always seem to fall on days that I have a conflict. 😦 I am excited that the meetings are closer to Philadelphia than they were! Maybe I can get there in January!

  3. Hey – I recognize this!! Before I got to the end, I was thinking, didn’t I see that on her wall? LOL I love it as a wall hanging OR a baby blanket, although I guess the fraying thing would need to be addressed next time. But yeah – love this one!! 🙂
