Baby Quilt

I fell in love with this line of fabric–especially the guitars. I love the colors and I like to have black in the mix, too. Black baby things are hard to find, which surprises me since people wear so much black these days. Who wants to be surrounded in pastels all the time? I had a few of the complementary fabrics on hand, and I whipped this up just by placing fabric squares together and mixing and matching until I liked the final combo. A girlfriend of mine always makes the backs of her quilts unique, so I copied her and gave the back a splash of animals.

In other news, we””””ve officially moved into our new house! I””””m so excited. We finally have some extra space–for things and for entertaining. We””””re all feeling pretty settled and the cat seems happier than she has been in ages. Our new house has tons of light and some creepy areas for her to explore. We have a backyard, which Uly is thrilled about. Whenever he takes your hands to walk around the house, he leads you directly to the back door and points and looks at you–very subtle. I will have pics to show you soon.

And, my sweet baby boy is one year today. I had a pic of him eating his birthday cake picked out to upload, but the camera ran out of juice and the battery is packed up some place. I can””t believe it””s been a whole year already. I feel so overwhelmingly blessed to have been able to spend a whole year with such a sweet little creature–to watch him grow and learn and develop; it””s such a wondrous and beautiful adventure.

    Boy fabric is so hard to find–cute fabric and cute quilt! Who did you give it to?

    I thought about Uly a lot yesterday. I can”t believe he is one year old! I remember May 10th of last year, like it was yesterday. Happy birthday, Uly! I would love to see pics from his party.

    Hi there,

    I just found your site on the weekend! I googled hem jeans, and went exploring. My grandmother passed away just over a year ago, and My father found her never used sewing machine and said I can take it with me next time I visit (I”m rather excited but I”d trade all the sewing machines in the world to have Grandma back). My first thought was wow I can Hem my ridiculously long jeans, I think I”m starting to get too old for the shredded bottoms look. After I found your tutorial on hemming jeans I discovered all kinds of inspiration, so thank you! That”s a beautiful blanket, and Happy Birthday to your little one!
