Long Time, No Post

I can’t believe it has been TWO MONTHS since I last posted. Lots of stuff going on with life and work, but I do have a new show & tell, which I *hope* to follow with a tutorial later this week. I’m moving next week from my apartment into a house, so it might not get posted until next month, but it will get done!

This quilt has a looooong story behind the planning and layout of the pattern. I’ll share more on that in my tutorial post. More importantly, it is for a dear friend who just had her first baby. We met a couple years back at Stitch Lab, during a Sewcial Lounge, here in Austin, TX. A small group of 6 of us were chatting and it turned out my friend and I lived in the same apartment complex and were both fairly new to Austin. We started hanging out and crafting together soon after, and have been friends ever since! It seems like just yesterday she and I were talking about her starting a family with her hubby, and a couple of weeks ago they welcomed a perfect baby boy into their lives! They are going to be awesome parents, and he is a very lucky baby.

Must Love Quilts

 

I think this quilt is perfectly sized for tummy time, and playtime! I actually machine-bound this one so they can throw it in the washing machine as many times as they like. I quilted the white squares with white thread diagonally, and quilted the teal and orange squares in their respective colors on the opposite diagonal.

  1. These colors are so fun, and I think your straight-line quilting is quite effective for adding movement and interest without overwhelming the quilt. Fun choice of binding too.
