Baby Quilt - Making Blocks
I was a little concerned about how I was going to make those blue strips align correctly so I decided to paper piece those corner blocks. I haven't actually joined any of the blocks together yet but I think they should all align in nice and straight lines.
When I was choosing the fabrics for this quilt I knew there was a possibility that I might not have enough of the yellow fabric. I really wanted to use that particular fabric because it has little orange paw prints on it and I thought it really suited the quilt. I have finished making all of the block components and I ended up with a very small amount of the yellow fabric left. Just a couple triangles, a few scrappy bits and one string piece from the edge that is just about 2" wide. I was quite prepared to piece bits of scraps together if I needed to but happily I didn't!
