It seems like now is the season in my life where all the friends who were getting married 1-4 years ago are now on the baby train. Which I fully support, because I love crafting and baby stuff is ADORABLE! Also, it takes up such little fabric and practically no time to stitch something together. An all-around winning situation for a crafter like me who really doesn't have patience to make something "adult" sized when it comes to sewing (#selfishsewing).
First to receive a handmade quilt is Isla Grace (born June 2014 - her mommy blogs here).
Mom and Dad did not know if they were expecting a little lady or little man and decorated the nursery in yellows and grays. So I set out to make my first quilt. I used this tutorial to piece the quilt. I made my own binding and then quilted by hand, stitching the outline of every other triangle with a yellow gradient quilting thread (took me ~25 hours for the hand quilting - but it was so worth it!)
I really enjoyed making this, as I typically sew clothing, it was a fun change of pace. Mom and Isla are doing well and hopefully enjoying this heartfelt gift!
