Baby Clothes Quilt: Part 3

Once upon a time I decided to cut up all (well most) of my daughter's clothes in order to make a baby clothes quilt. Well, lots of junk happened and all my cut out squares have been sitting in my top dresser drawer for about 4 months:)

I was feeling productive today. Well, productive in the "I wanna craft but not wash the dishes piling up in my sink" way:) So, I attacked my pile o' squares and ironed them all onto interfacing.

Yes..that is seriously my iron. It's mini and I love it:)

This was my original Photoshop design for the quilt. I had coded each pattern so that I could lay it out and see how I liked it.

Funny thing about making a code for patterns and then waiting 4 months to look at it again...I kinda forgot what codes were for what patterns! So, needless to say it took a WHILE to make my design come true in real life.

Here are all my squares laid out on our bed:

P.S. We got new bedroom furniture and I can't wait to get started on our bedroom! Our downstairs is almost done and I am trying to finish one project before I start a next:) So, for now our room is empty...except for our new furniture that makes us feel like true adults;)

So, after laying out all my squares, I put them together by horizontal rows to make it easier to sew them together.

I have 15 rows of 11 squares. Now...maybe I will get it all sewed together in another 4 months? Nah...I really got to get on this because I know once I have this baby...ain't nothin' crafty getting done for a while:)

OK, now time to go watch endless episodes of Hoarders on Netflix. It always makes me want to clean my house really well afterwards. It also works on my I make him watch it with me sometimes;)
