From the Cutting Board

I know that I haven't finished my Quiet Book yet, but I am really frustrated with it now and am taking a break. Not from sewing, but from that particular project. I have a friend who is having a baby in March, and I need to get started on her baby quilt. See, that is my thing. When one of my friends or family members has a baby, I make them a quilt.

These are the fabrics that I'm using for the quilt pieces:


These are the fabrics for the larger pieces and binding, and the quilt back.


This is a close-up of the detail on the backing fabric.


So far I have everything cut, laid out on the cutting board, and am working on piecing it all together. Hopefully I can hurry and get it pieced so that I can throw it on the quilt machine and get this baby quilt finished!

Speaking of cutting boards. . . I got a new one the other day! I am so excited. We went to Ikea, and my husband convinced me to buy this beautiful wood butcher's block. I'm going to make a cover for it, so I can use it as a bread board as well as a cutting board. Here is a picture of it. We started the oil treatment last night, so the color of the wood will get deeper as the treatment progresses.
