baby quilt progress

Here is my progress on my SLEEP baby quilt.  I decided to make a 'story book village' on the back of the quilt...all the houses have text prints or number prints...I tried to make it a 'wordy' quilt back...and at the last minute I decided to make a girl for the center vs. another house....Im a bit perplexed by how to fill in the spaces...but Ive dug thru my stash for small dots on white fabric and came up with a few that I think I will use to piece the back together.

and yes...my sewing room is usually this messy...much to my dismay....
I also received this star block this past week as part of my Around the Bend and Across the Pond! bee. Ann has hinted that she would like stars and that she doesn't typically use such a pastel palette...so I plan on working on stars this week...and have laid out some fabrics for this on my design floor.

Have a great week!

  6. I love those houses and am really wanting to make some house blocks myself, thanks for the inspiration. And, your sewing room looks fantastic, you are certainly not alone. I finally organized mine this weekend, but only enough so piles weren't falling over anymore. I would much rather sew!
