on day one of KCW I did a lot of sewing and promised to share later. A dear friend (2 dear friends really) are expecting a third little girl. I didn’t make quilts for her sisters as I wasn’t quilting then, but I have a lovely batik jelly roll in a watermelon colorway that feels just right for a baby quilt. My special quilting assistant got to help with his very first quilt. With just a little help, he sorted the strips into sets for me.
KCW Day One was sewing day two for the quilt. I’m making it according to this Missouri Star Quilt Tutorial, which is a variation on Pinwheel Tutorial that they had created. The variation was created by Three Dudes Quilting (the name of which amuses my husband greatly*). I’ve pieced the strips, cut sewn, cut and am ready to layout and do the final piecing on the blocks.

*He would like to know if men have to quilt better than women to get any recognition as women often have to outperform men to receive recognition in other arenas. I haven’t encountered enough of them to know.
