Things have been hard the last few weeks. Some of my favorite blogs let people into their world – are honest and share the struggle so we all feel a little more human, like we are in this thing together. I want to be able to do that – but it is hard. Hard to share, hard to open up. So the sadness remains cryptic, but I appreciate you being out there dear reader. It will all be ok. It has to be.
And, so, another baby quilt. Setting aside the weirdness of a woman who has never had a baby making baby quilts, they make me happy. Full of bright colors and promise and joy of a baby on a homemade quilt. I mean, really, that is amazing. And so I make baby quilts.
I want to make 12 quilts for Project Linus this year. This one is #3. A lot of my friends are having boys. And so making a girl quilt is pretty darn fun. This one is from a Bonnie and Camille charm pack and a lot of French General faux linen. The pattern was fun, and I made this one a bit easier on myself by quilting just on to the batting and then tying with the perfect shade of aqua to the backing. I think this quilt is going to make a little girl smile.
This is the end of the simperingly sweet waxing on baby quilts. For now. There will be more simpering and there will be more baby quilts.
