Still Waiting

Elizabeth’s due date came and went on Monday. Here it is Wednesday and Miss E still doesn’t want to come out and play yet.

The finishing of her quilt on Monday did nothing to entice her. It seems that she is quite cozy where she is, thank you very much.

The front:

The back:

Design: My own, if you can call it a design. Truly it’s nothing more than a huge 9-patch square enclosed by 2 borders.
Quilting: I used a combination of stitch-in-the-ditch, following lines in the themed fabric, and using cookie cutters to draw designs in the plain fabric squares.
Fabric: The princess squares and the back fabric are from a line called “Once Upon a Time”. I found it in my local quilting store (how spoiled I am to have both a quilting store and a sewing store within walking distance). Additionally the red heart fabric was also found in my local quilting store. The blue fabric was “donated” by Dan; it’s an old work shirt of his that no longer fit. The white fabric was from an old sheet. I just love to incorporate at least one “old” fabric in each of my quilts.
Duration: 1 week from start to finish; I think it’s the fastest I’ve ever completed a quilt. I should bottle this nesting instinct and sell it. I could make a fortune!
