Wee Wander Patchwork

The past two weeks have been filled with kids. Not much sewing and not much blogging, but certainly lots of giggles.



I made my granddaughters new blankets. They are patchwork squares from Wee Wander by Sarah Jane with some coordinating prints thrown in. I'm not sure they'd be considered quilts - I didn't add any batting, but simply backed them in super soft white minky. The kids seem to love the soft feel of the fabric and it makes for a nice lightweight, drapey blanket.

I love the simple design of the patchwork squares...


And I added some quick quilting to hold all the layers together by straight stitching diagonally through all the squares in both directions...


They turned out super soft and colorful!


In addition to having the girls, we were kept on our toes by this little guy...


So tomorrow I'm off on a quilting retreat! I'm bringing way too many projects and looking forward to sewing and hanging out with my best buddies!


I'll be posting on Instagram if you care to get a sneak peek!
