This is the year I’m doing it, I’m making a twin-size Christmas quilt for the living room. It’s always been on my list, I’ve never actually done it.

I fired up Love Actually on my laptop and combed through all the holiday prints I’ve been hoarding for years now.

It’s time to move Hannah out of her toddler bed and into a twin. She’d been boycotting the toddler bed, which was her converted crib, since the beginning of the school year. She absolutely refused to sleep in it, she’d camp out on the floor. And when fall started to kick into gear, Adam and I realized we needed to get her a new bed before it got way too chilly for her to be on the floor.

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.

Yay! In the September/October of Generation Q I have a new quilt I designed called “This Goose Is a Bit Rich.” I love this one. It took me a while to make, and my wonderful friend Rachael Dorr did the quilting. She’s incredible.

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.

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.

I finished this little quilt for Hannah Thanksgiving week, but for some reason I just never got around to posting photos. I don’t think it was any real reason other than the holidays kept me busy and then there was too much snow to take it outside for photos.

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.

I made this Dr. Seuss-themed quilt for Hannah’s first birthday, but I never put together a tutorial for it. So, in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday today I thought I’d post some instructions for this one! You can obviously use any fun kid fabrics you have, but I’m not a big fan of pastels. I love this stark black contrasted with bold and bright primaries.
