I finished the growth chart for Elliot! My husband decided on Munchkin's 2nd birthday that he wished we had a growth chart. My first thought was a wall cling one, but he wasn't crazy about that. I looked at some panels that are meant to be growth charts, but we didn't like any that we found. After browsing some images online, I was ready to commit to making one.
Moda Bake Shop tutorial by Vanessa from the Craft Gemini, this picture of charts made for twin boys, which were based on this picture that I guess originally had a tutorial but the link is now broken.
The main thing I took from the Moda Bake Shop tutorial is using jelly roll strips. I recently hosted an I Spy swap of 2 1/2 inch strips. This was the perfect project to use some of my favorites! I sewed mine in groups of 4, as the tutorial suggested. I used 4 different sets for a total of 16 different I Spy fabrics. Each combination is repeated at least twice with two combinations repeated a third time. It's 80 inches long, and if I ever make another one I will use one less set of strips in the construction, as I honestly think it is too long. (The bottom is 6 inches from the ground and the numbers are set accordingly, so that is a factor, too.)
Red Letter Quilts--I was goal-setter 91. This was also on my list of Q1 goals for the Finish Along; you can find my goal-setting post for the FAL here.
