i've been rather blog- quiet for the past few months, spending my time interviewing for jobs, driving furniture strapped to my car to refugee families and generally keeping my head down and getting to work making our friends feel welcome in my community- especially in the midst of all of this xenophopic stupidity happening on the internet and in politics these days.
but this post is not about that.
this post is about another thing i've been doing with my time- hand stitching a baby quilt for some friends. i made them a wedding quilt back in 2012, and just finished last night a quilt for their baby, due to arrive in a few weeks.
i looked up a lovely quilt pattern on pinterest and figured out how to do it after ripping out a few stars and refusing to learn to sew a y-seam. i'm rather happy with how it all turned out!
the fabric i bought in a bundle on etsy. it's from the hello bear line, and it is adorable. i hand stitched the quilting and the binding to make it extra special- the sort of quilt you keep around for years and years. plus, i love the wabi-sabi look of it so much i couldn't resist.
