I finished my next quilt top based on this pattern, a zig zag quilt that is triangle free. I chose to use all printed fabrics instead of alternating between solid and prints. I had some trouble early on figuring out how to make it work, and it is a bit smaller than I anticipated. I may add a border to bring it closer to twin size, but I don’t want it to be so large that she can’t drag it around with her.
The dots worked out better than the flowers but I don’t mind everything being miss matched at the seams. If you are looking for perfection from this pattern, go with solids or repeating patterns rather than random prints. The pink dot fabric was super stretchy and hard to work with. I’m working on a doll sized quilt from the left over scrap squares. I also plan on making another doll sized quilt with this pattern that will match perfectly.
I plan on using a flannel sheet as batting, which I still need to buy, so it will still be a while before this quilt is officially done.
P.S. Kaylee had a good first day at daycare. She was all smiles when we dropped her off and we watched her through the window, happily cooing in the sitter’s lap as we walked to the car. She was resting peacefully in the assistants arms when we came to pick her up. It took her a while to smile at us through her sleepy haze, but she finally managed a shy little smile on the way out the door. We all made it through our first day apart relatively unscathed.
