wip: a quilt for e

I've been working on an easy quilt for E's room. You've seen bits a pieces of her nursery and this will be the matching quilt - made from Sarah Jane's Out to Sea and coordinating solids (Kona) and a touch of Essex Linen.

I wanted a pattern that could highlight some of the fun prints and allow for some fussy cutting. But of course, it needed to be a simple pattern that was quick to work up as time these days is pretty limited. I settled on a disappearing 9 patch as it satisfied both requirements. I like that it's such an easy pattern to make but looks a bit more complicated than it is.

I cut all the squares to 5" and began to piece the strips. I got half done in one evening!

I just need to spend an hour or so piecing the other half and cutting them up again. Then it will be time to lay them out and make the quilt top. Hopefully, provided she keeps up with her current sleep schedule, we'll have some more progress to show (and maybe even a pieced top) by the end of the month!
