It's Show Time!

Or almost anyway.
And it seems I am a little far behind in getting ready for my first quilt show of the year.
Mid February is almost upon us.
So yesterday, I started cutting all the little 3-1/2 squares I need for demonstrating my
Stitching Lines. I need a gazillion! Yep, I do! I have been turning the finished half-square triangles into little baby quilts. But I have to pick through all the finished half-square triangles to find the right colors. This year I have a plan. I am getting a little smarter.
I picked the main fabric for the quilt first. Heh, what a concept!!

So........I found a couple of prints that will work for a baby,
a cute little cow print and a pretty little red rose on a yellow background.

Then I went through all my scraps and pulled what I thought would work.
Lucky me! The same fabrics look like they will work for both quilts.
I just have to pull the blues for the yellow and red rose print.

Unfortunately, that is not enough squares to sew.
The quilt show will outlast my squares, so I am on the same mission today.

I'd love to see your baby quilts once you are done. I'm getting ready to start a new scrap quilt...368 half squares! Yikes. I may need more Stitching Lines. Have fun at the show.
