Well, I started another baby quilt this weekend. Here's the beginning. I haven't finished the applique yet-the basket needs more flowers. I left the space at the top for the baby's name. Gina thinks the sheep looks like a dog...sigh. I was going to put the blocks I have pinned together on the side as the border but think they are too big for the applique design. They are Hoochy Mama blocks from Mary Weidman's latest book. You don't have a template, you just start cutting and sewing. It was harder to do that randomly than it would be to use a template. I didn't realize I have such a problem with "casual cutting"! So just a start--I have a few more months before it has to be finished. Have any of you guys made these blocks?
