Wheels!



























This is a simple baby quilt made from Riley Blake's wheels line.  It is so cute and boyish.  Nate needed a baby gift for someone he works with and so I put together this  I also added a few soft blocks for the baby to squish around.  I just did a big stipple for the quilting, it went together really fast and I am really pleased with the result.

I have quite a project list building right now.  I am going to try to start and finish each one with minimal overlap.  Overlap is what gets me in trouble and causes UFO's.  I am behind on my Pinwheel party quilt-a-long, but have plans to really get going on that next week.

I love this. I have been loving Riley Blake lately.

Overlap is what gets me in trouble too, but I'm not sure how to avoid it. Apparently I can't tell myself no. Actually, though, I have two of the three pinwheel party blocks done. I'm amazed. Can't wait to see yours.
