I have so much to post about but life has totally gotten in the way lately. Time to try to catch you guys up to speed with my life and my sewing!
Remember the colorful solids I was playing with a while back? I mixed and matched between designers a bit so the set had Kaffe Fassett Shot Cottons, Pepper Cory’s Peppered Cottons, and Andover’s Textured Cottons all included. Last time I checked in, I had sewn them all up into a bunch of HST and hourglass blocks.
I had to get them both quilted up and bound really quickly too because they were for something really important. Everything was happening so fast that I wasn’t even able to get photos of one of them outdoors! My kitchen floor around midnight had to do!
I really love the look of the black and white striped binding!
Now what was the rush you ask? Well – these baby quilts were used to announce to both my mom and my husband’s mom that they are going to be grandmas! That’s right – I’m pregnant and we’ll be having our first child (a baby girl) in June!
I couldn’t wait to tell them so both quilts were finished and gifted within a week of me and my husband learning the news ourselves! Both of our moms loved their quilts and started crying as they read the label on the back!
So that is why I haven’t been posting as much lately. Pregnancy fatigue and getting ready to grow our family has been stealing a lot of my time and, while I’ve still fit some sewing in, I haven’t found time to actually post about. But hopefully I can get back on track here soon!
