I have had Camie's square cut out since the second week of October. While I, like Sarah, haven't had or grown any babies I blame these guys (and my own stupidity) for my delay. Between those boys and a friend's baby who came early and who was owed a quilt I suddenly felt swamped with time sensitive sewing. (I'll post pics of the friend's quilt hopefully soon!) I panicked and I shifted gears.
Once I sat down to finish these squares this past weekend they were both so fun and easy. I think I'd psyched myself out that they would be far beyond my abilities (I have a habit of doing that) and so I didn't think I could bang them out. I'm sorry I made you wait because I'm such a wimp. Thank you Camie and Mardie for being so very patient with me. Here are both of your squares. I hope you like them!
I hope the fabrics and layout will work for you! So fun to see what I saw as your vision come together in my square. Hoping I saw it right!
And Mardie, I am so sorry for how symmetrical mine ended out. Apparently I'm a wimp AND boring! I tried so hard to make it something more unique, but I ended up boxing myself in and so I hope it's not too straight laced. I left the ugly edges for you to trim as per your instructions. I think mine is more 12 3/4 by 12 3/4.
Still super symmetrical at any angle. Sigh. I hope it's an awesome addition to your Christmas season!
