baby quiltPosted: March 30, 2011
will ya look at that?
i finished the baby quilt i started in september.
it’s all washed and dried and crinkly and it didn’t fall apart after it came out of the dryer and i kinda love it. nothin’ fancy, no fancy quilting. (i saw a modern, minimal baby quilt on flickr i admired, decided to make something similar and just kinda winged it using boy colored fabrics.)
my first ever (!) finished quilt to be used by a human, albeit a little bitty human.
a little quilt to be used by a little human to puke on, pee on and poop on.
oh it warms my heart so.
the back is all white with one little square of vintage fabric. i had to use some vintage fabric. the antlered buck struck me as very masculine and therefore appropriate.
the white, however, is a tad impractical. what do i know? i’m not a mom.
this is definitely more like it, more my speed. six months from start to finish. this timeline feels just about right – as a matter of fact, i prefer it – it keeps me from getting sick of the project i’m working on. yes – the gal is back who starts a project in one year and finishes it the following year.
