Almost made it!

Last week I took part in the One Week Challenge over at Amy's Creative Side. I wanted to make 2 appliqued onesies and 6 burp cloths for a shower gift, plus finish the binding on baby quilt for another shower.

I almost made it - work got the better of me, unfortunately. I never realized how tired you can get after standing in the OR for 4 hours, but I think alot of it was mental tiredness. We had some weird ECMO things going on that didn't make much sense and me bending my brain cells in crazy ways to figure it out left me spent when I would get home....and a full weekend of work didn't help either...

So all told, I think I did pretty well - 3 burp cloths, 2 onesies, and a finished baby pinwheel quilt. This was my first ever pinwheel quilt and I'm really happy with the results - almost all of the points line up! Still had a few wrinkles on the back, but I'm improving with each one! Can't wait to start on my next quilt - the charm pack quiltalong at Freckled Whimsy. I picked up some great Deer Valley charm packs :)


  1. The onesies are super cute!
    Your pinwheel quilt looks great too.

  2. Love the pinwheels! Just beautiful!

  3. I love the quilt! The onesies are so adorable!

  4. Oooo... I love the little pinwheel quilt. That is just awesome (and the quilting works so perfectly!). The onsies are pretty darn cute too. :)

  5. Everything is so cute. You did great!!!
