Did I finish my first quilt? No. But I finished all the quilting which took me a really long time. But I made it, even with two bouts of machine troubles (much cursing.) At least I didn't sew through any of my fingers or anything. Just needs binding now. This will be a busy week, but we are making it happen people.
Did I start another quilt just for fun? Yes. Here's the quilt top I made using Rachel's Loulouthi tiles instructions. It's baby sized with Moda Bella Green for the sashing. (Which looks more like mint green or sea foam to me, but they just call it green.) Nick is attached to those feet, rolling his eyes.
That quilt top came together really quickly with those big pieces. Perfect for the AMH collection. Late that night I decided to have fun with the scraps and made a wonky log cabin block for the quilt back. I love little surprises on the back of a quilt.
I really never expected to like quilting this much. I'll probably just make one for everyone I know now.
I also made some little boy clothes and some little girl clothes that I'll show you soon. And we took a whirlwind trip to Boston. It was fun, but a bit of a cluster-cuss at times (airport times.) I could formulate some great parenting post full of wisdom about traveling with two small children, but I still don't have any of that wisdom. So I'll just tell you a little about it so you can laugh at my misfortunes. Those are really the best kind of parenting posts, the ones that make you really glad it didn't happen to you, or really glad your children are always model citizens and better than everyone else's. Until they remind you that isn't true...ten minutes later.
