I never posted this one, but I participated in the latest #makeaquiltmakeafriend swap through Instragram during the fall. In November I mailed off this mini Tula Pink sampler made with Cotton + Steel prints to my swap partner @Tripleee80.

At the end of July, a friend of mine from graduate school was rushed to the hospital. It was very sudden. A few days later she passed away…she was younger than I am.

therapy baskets

So Hannah graduated from feeding therapy back in the spring, and then we switched OTs from the same clinic a month or so later when we found another awesome speech and OT clinic. In the craziness of spring, end of school year, preschool prep…I never gave her old therapists gifts.

I started a quilt with this collection a couple of weeks ago under extremely sad circumstances. I’ve stalled on its progress because of those same sad circumstances, but I’ll be getting back to it next week. And I will finish it. The top is done, but then I needed to put it away for a bit. I’ll piece the back and get it quilted and bound. Then I will share more.

Actually, it was delivered to Maggie and her husband Dave about 2 months ago. This is just how far behind on life I’ve been lately. I love this quilt. I unabashedly adore it, and I’m glad it found a good home. I name my quilts in my head when I’m working on them, and “Betty” was a doozy.

twin crowns

A lovely friend of mine had twins last week, a boy and a girl. I’d meant to give these to her at a quilt guild meeting last month but couldn’t make it. I made them using my own fabric crown tutorial, and I adjusted them to fit newborn heads. These will adjust from 13″ to 16″ circumference, and they’re reversible. Although twins are usually pretty tiny, so it may still be a while before their little heads fit them.

Seriously, I am just finishing things left and right. LIKE A BOSS. I finished Maggie’s wedding quilt and got it in the mail (photos once it’s reached its destination). I finally mailed off a magazine quilt that had fallen through the cracks. I also mailed off a handmade gift for a new mom friend (again, photos later) that should’ve been delivered last month.

It’s coming along so much! I finished the top before we left for Las Vegas, and I made the backing when we got home. It’s all sandwiched, and I started on the quilting this weekend. That will be a time task, I’m doing different motifs on every square. And actually, every part of each square.

You know the rule that you have a year to buy a newlywed couple a wedding gift? Well…I have failed that timeline spectacularly. Maggie and Dave got married in October 2013, and I’m still working on their quilt. I’ve had to put it aside for months now because of deadlines, going back to teaching, and toddler duties. But, it is my top crafty priority at the moment.
