Hand Pieced Quilt Along 2019-03 - The top is finished

Through one of the Facebook groups I’m following, I found a new quilt along project I would like to do someday. 
I did not plan to start this project, as I’m still working on the “Winterse hexjes” [LINK] and I already have too many projects that need to be finished (UFO’s) – the “problem” of the majority of quilters.

As always, I planned to save the notes and get back when I have time to start something new… some day…

But in this case, fate gave me an excellent reason to start a new quilt: I just heard that I will become grandmother again – and of course the new baby needs a quilt!
So this time I intend to make a baby quilt – sewn and quilted by hand. 

The Quilt Along party (QAL) is hosted by Kristin Esser - Simply Everyday Handmade - and Patty Dudek - Elm Street Quilts.

It started in January 2019 and will last for approx. 3 months. Kristin and Patty will teach step by step how to make nine (9) different basic blocks and how to assemble them to make a quilt. 

Of course, Kristin and Patty will only be making small quilts:
Kristin will do 23 x 23 inch / 58 x 58 cm; Patty will do 32 x 32 inch / 81 x 81 cm.
I want mine to be bigger: approx. 80 x 120 cm / 34 x 44 inches. 

The quilt blocks and layout have been revealed, the pattern looks like this (picture from Elm Street Quilts, with permission from Patty Dudek) [LINK].

Each block will be 6 x 6 inch / 15 x 15 cm (finished in the quilt), and we will be sewing one block per week for 9 weeks. I managed to include some cute teddy bear fabric, and a few other pieced that could be used for “I spy…”. 

I haven’t published anything about my progress for a while but I did continue sewing. Today is the day that I finished the top!

I like the result so far. Now on to find some warm flannel for the back and think of a quilting design for the white blocks and borders.
Do you have any suggestions?
