Baby steps to a finished quilt

I'm still chugging along on my Marcelle Medallion.  Since my last update I managed to add the flying geese, cut, piece, and add the brick border, pick out fabrics for the next border, and organize stuff for the crosses (border after the next border)!  Plus, I made a Halloween costume before Halloween (what?!?), made name labels to iron on clothes for daycare, and made/modified a couple of bibs.  Whew! (If only I could get some pictures and write real posts about all of that!)

Anywho, here's where I stand:
I really wanted to push to get the top completed by Thursday, since I go back to work on Friday.  But the reality is that I'll probably be too busy sobbing about having to return to work sans baby.  (I've considered just wearing her like an accessory and acting normal...I mean, no one would notice, right?)  Now to distract myself, I'm going to go peruse the other beauties in the Marcelle Medallion Quilt Along - you should seriously go check them out - they're stunning!!  Also, special thanks to Jenn (a.k.a. Penny) for hosting!  Even though I could not keep up to save my life, it was so much fun to quilt along and the perfect project for these early days of nap time sewing!


  1. I second the wearing the baby idea. Just pretend you've started wearing really giant and noisy necklaces.

    LOVE your quilt so far... the colours are gorgeous. I'm so tempted to start one but I know I'll never get anything else done! Can't wait to see you Sat :)

  2. Love love love the colours in this one - it is going to be stunning!

  3. Hey, if Miley can dress like porno teddy or as a roll of electrical tape, wearing a baby is downright appropriate and tasteful. Plus, baby - they are cute and wonderful. Try to see going back to work as a positive thing - it will be good for you. Pretty sure. :-)

    Your marcelle is looking gorgeous - great colours!

  4. Love your colors! And your mix of solids and patterns is awesome! Remember when you're getting pulled between work and home to carve out a little time for your self, that's so important :)

  5. What a pretty medallion quilt! Your baby girl is adorable, and your single girl quilt is awesome. Quilting with babies in the house is easier than toddlers, just warn you ;-)
