I started this quilt for our friends Josh and Lindsay’s baby right around when she was born…. and finally finished it in time for her first birthday party this weekend! Time really flies when it comes to quilts.
The “Olive” part was paper pieced using the Wonky Alphabet pattern by KelbySews. I quilted it on my longarm with Magnifico thread in “Elegante” using a cute daisy petals design and machine bound it in some Heather Ross Strawberries. It finished at 45×54, so it’s more of a kid sized quilt than a baby quilt. Hopefully little Olivia (who I swear is so adorable and beautiful she seriously looks like a tiny angel straight from heaven) will have the opportunity to snuggle it for a long, long time.
Wow, it’s been so long since I’ve posted a blog that it took me a few minutes to remember how to log in! It’s been even longer since I’ve used my real camera, but I still remember how to do that ;) The kids had some fun on the porch with paint this afternoon. Things got messy and I just had to dust off the old Nikon – I’m so happy I did! I need more picture of Liza in my life. Second child syndrome – sorry, Bean.
I’m so excited to announce that Greg and I just launched a clothing line! His love for screen printing and my passion for patchwork and quilting are combined to bring you Patchwork Threads. We are seriously having so much fun with this. I’m running a little giveaway over on Instagram, and here’s one for the blog too! Win a shirt – just check out the shop, comment below with your favorite and we’ll draw a winner on Monday morning, March 10th. Good luck!
