Another two quick and easy projects to add to the tally.
I completely blame these two quilts on Facebook. You know how it is with college roommates- even when you've fallen out of touch, you still love them to death. Well, thanks to Facebook, I still know exactly who's getting married, who's pregnant, and all other sorts of major life changes even if I haven't spoken to them in years. So, one former roommate is having her first baby- a little girl. And another is having her second baby- also a little girl. Now, I love baby boys and all but there is just something about baby girls that gets me. All that pink! And tiny floral prints. Awwww. Well, I started thinking about what sort of quilt I would do for those two little girls, if I just happened to have the time and money for supplies. Well, you know where that leads- searching through my favorites on Flickr and Pinterest. And then there was no stopping me. I had decided on a design and started pulling scraps and even started sewing before I had decided for sure I was actually making them quilts.
These quilts were so much fun to make! It's just one giant wonky log cabin block. I just went around and around, adding scraps and strips until I had enough for a baby quilt.
I didn't have to buy any fabric at all for the tops. It's all from my scraps and stash. It would take an obscene number of quilts to even put a dent in my scraps. I think they're multiplying.
I did buy the backing and binding fabrics, but baby quilts really don't take much.
What's that, you ask? Those funky triangles in the corner? Well, any old school video game geeks (like the soon-to-be parents) know just what that is.
It's a triforce from Legend of Zelda. I may have giggled a whole lot while piecing that. I pretty much love it. The one without it is just named the Princesa quilt (the Dad is a native Spanish speaker). But, this one- this one is named the Princesa Zelda quilt. I think I'm funny even if no one else does.
