Do you ever spend more time thinking of a new quilt project than it takes to actually complete the quilt? Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this.
I don't know why I feel the need to come up with something different rather than just following the pattern. After this previous post about siggy blocks for a baby shower, I went back to Julie's layout for the second modern siggy swap. Just think how much time I could have saved myself!
I used shot cottons for the colored strips, and the inside portion will eventually have the baby's name pieced or something along those lines. None of the blocks are assembled together yet. The finished layout will be determined by the number of blocks signed, etc. and any additional sashing and/or borders.
I have a variety of Sharpie markers and Micron pens for the mom-to-be to choose from. I wrote on several blocks and then washed them multiple times to make sure the colors didn't run or fade.
I'll report back after the baby shower. From what I understand, instead of games, there will be quilt block signing, onesie decorating and scrapbook page making!
