This is my quilt top for the “Baby Love” quilt – the third quilt in the Simply Retro quilt along. I started this quilt yesterday morning and had all the blocks pieced by 2:00. Then I had to stop and get ready for work so I finished the top this morning. I had planned to show you a completed quilt but the backing needs a quick wash before I put it all together. I am in the middle of working seven days in a row for our city’s summer fair so I thought I’d go with the quilt top photos in case I don’t get finished in time for the quilt along deadline.
I trimmed my half square triangles but I still had trouble when it came to piecing. I was wishing I hadn’t trimmed them by the end. I managed to fix most of the problems in the seam allowance and didn’t wind up chopping off too many of the triangle points. It was frustrating though.
This is where I was in the process yesterday morning after I finished cutting my pieces.
The charm squares I am using are from the fabric line “Simplicity” by 3 Sisters for Moda. I especially like the text prints.
