For Baby Hill

I really should quilt more.  I’ve been gradually giving away my pile of baby quilts and when I got an invitation to a baby shower realized that I didn’t have one on hand. I’m not a big fan of sewing under pressure, but sometimes being forced to sew is good for me.  I took a quick trip to the fabric store and had this quilt finished the night before the shower.

For Baby Hill

It was washed and wrinkled just hours before before gifting,

& wrapped with a little teddy bear.

It was a lot bigger than I anticipated – 52″ x 52″.

Have you ever given away a quilt only to have the recipient say that they were going to to keep it in a drawer because it was too nice?  I made sure mom knew it was fully washable and intended for burps and spit up.  Hopefully it will be doing it’s job well in the coming months!

Craft Apple

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well, crafting is my apple. It’s what I do to maintain my sanity while taking care of my family. I homeschool my three boys, ages 14, 15, and 16), am a quilter, a bagaholic, and pattern designer.  Oh – and I also like taking pictures.
