I’m finishing up a commissioned baby quilt this week, to be delivered on Thursday. After I made the chevron quilt for H’s speech therapist, using Crazy Mom Quilts’ tutorial, another staffer at her speech clinic commissioned one for her friend’s baby shower. In lovely lavender and gray fabrics that she picked out from Fat Quarter Shop.

The Orlando Modern Quilt Guild has been running a drive this summer to collect rainbow quilts for the victims and family members of the Pulse nightclub massacre. My guild is participating. Some phenomenal women pieced together these heart blocks, contributed by members, and then they sent it to me to quilt it.

corduroy quilt

Earlier this summer Cloud9 Fabrics asked if I would make a Corduroy version of the Easy Peasy Quilt I did for their Knuffle Bunny fabric collection. The Corduroy line of prints just launched this month, and the quilt is now up on their site! I don’t think this stops being exciting, it’s just really cool to see something you’ve made out in the world like that.

I’ve sketched out a bunch of options, but the gradient of half square triangles above is the winner. I may tweak the overall number of rows for each color, but that’s what I’m going with.

I’m kind of exhausted by politics this year, it must be said. But I made this banner last week during the DNC to celebrate HRC’s historic nomination for a major political party. I’m full of excitement and positivity about my kid’s future, and whatever happens in November (and my own personal politics, which are hard to ignore with a banner like this), representation matters.

I still need to write up a tutorial for this at some point, I now have 2 tutorials (maybe 3?) that I need to write up soon. But this quilt is finished, washed, photographed, and moved into its new home on our couch. I love it! This is such a different color scheme for me to work in, and I really, really like it.

This one is finished! I was making this for Hannah’s speech therapist, who is amazing and expecting a baby girl next month. And I got it delivered to her this week before she heads off on maternity leave. We will miss her! So, she gets a quilt.

dino kit 2

I’m not even sure if I can count this as our first sewing project, but it’s our first attempt. I bought this adorable dino kit on our UK trip and thought it would be a really good place to start with Hannah and sewing.
