Work in Progress Wednesday: Another Sneaky Peeky

It's that time again!
Zip over to Lee's to see what people are working on!

This week I only worked on the baby quilt I am making for a friend. The pattern is pretty straightforward, so no undue stress was involved. YAY! (Well other than trying to line up the plaid so it looks straight. Fail-ish)

The fabric is Fox Trails from Doohikey Designs for Riley Blake. I knew this would be perfect for this baby quilt the second I saw it. My friend (and her family) are big outdoors lovers. They camp and rock climb and bike and things like that. So cute camping fabric seemed like a good choice.

I did not like working with that plaid. It was a royal pain trying to keep both the pattern and cuts straight. I have one spot in particular that is annoying to me, but I didn't see it until the whole quilt was pieced. (Sorry C, I love you, but I am not undoing the whole quilt for one thing.)

So now I just need to fit the backing and baste it and I am going to attempt to quilt it myself. (Yikes!)
