I know I am the odd man out but I love a rainy Monday! I always have so much to do so it doesn't bother me at all. I also am very productive.
I found this wonderful vintage quilt and just could not leave it behind. The blocks are small, 4 1/2" finished and they are all hand pieced! A true labor of love. It's big too, 283 blocks a perfect size to use as a throw quilt.
The fabrics are varied which gives it a lot of life! The solid fabrics in the center of the quilt are red and along the edges they are pink. I am guessing either an artistic choice or a ran out of fabric choice!
So the question I asked on Instagram.......it needs to be washed. Do it before or after it is quilted? Give me your thoughts.
I am also making some baby quilts. This one is for my niece who is not finding out if it is a boy or a girl. I feel like that is becoming a trend again? It's all washed and nice and snuggley.

I changed up some of the fabric, as it was a kit. I like the polka dots. The pattern is by one of our Modern Quilt Guild members, Rachel Rossi. You can buy the kit and the pattern at The Quilt Block.
