Progress on DLN's quilt along has begun! I finally went to the store and got myself a compass. I've been meaning to get one all week so that I could get started. Today I put pencil to paper and made my template. I also was able to trace out 108 petals onto the lining and cut them all out. It was a productive day for my quilt along.
Here's a sneak at some of the Amy Butler, Daisy Chain fabrics I will be using along with a few others that are on order. They may seem to "feminine" for a boy's quilt, but I might end up making this quilt as a lap quilt for myself. I have another quilt in the works for the baby anyway.
My sister also made some progress on the nursery mural. She is drawing and painting a huge tree on the wall with birds that will sit above the change table. As you can see she had some supervision throughout the day. Milo is definitely a people cat. He doesn't need to be on your lap, he just likes to be in the same room. He sat in the room with us for most of the day.
