Everyone has that stage in their lives where all their friends are getting married and/or getting pregnant all at once, right? It’s like a bug that goes around and bites people and they just all start falling one by one. Well, my best friend from college recently had a baby, and so I made her a quilt for the little one. She asked for pink and green, and as I do fairly often, I found something perfect at Connecting Threads. I designed the quilt myself (read: decided on HST and just went with what I thought would look good).
I think it turned out really well! So well, in fact, that I didn’t feel guilty not giving it to her until her little one was almost 5 months old! To be fair, that’s what you get when you live in Virginia and your college friend is still up in Michigan.
It’s super soft and when I went back to visit, baby was all cuddled up with it in her bed. It was the first time I saw one of my quilts actually being used, and it made me all warm and fuzzy inside, haha.
Anyways, I’m really excited because I just dropped off a couple of my finished quilt tops with the quilter, so hopefully soon I’ll have a Halloween quilt, another baby quilt, a block of the month, and a wall hanging done! Yay!
