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.

February 2015

I loved last weekend. I only left the house to go get some lunch with Adam and Hannah on Saturday. The rest of the weekend was spent inside being a glorious homebody.

stof dot dress

Stof is a Danish fabric company completely unfamiliar to me until last week. Hannah and I went out to Pennington Quilt Works to spend my birthday coupon, and there were these magnificent dots. Stof’s Twist Style. The shop had more than one colorway, but this is the one Hannah and I both loved (she tried to run off with the bolt). So I bought a yard.

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.

This is my latest project that I can’t talk about yet, and by latest I mean I have been working on this one since last summer. One of the members of the NYC Metro Mod Quilt Guild, Rachael Dorr, did this amazing quilting for me. So I can’t show any of the actual patchwork right now, but I can continue to obsess over her amazing and gorgeous quilting.

Union Jack Quilt

See that page over on the left sidebar that says “Crafty Tutorials?” It has been sitting sadly with only two tutorials since I relaunched this blog last summer. I’m currently remedying that. Now it’s up to a whopping 5 tutorials!

I so wish I’d taken better photos of this finished quilt, especially since I’ve been holding on to it since February 2013–which is when I finished it! My friend Kathy and I have birthdays two weeks apart, and that’s what this was originally for last February. I’ve seen her a couple of times since then, but we’ve either held off on exchanging presents or I’ve forgotten it completely. This is a testament to the kind of close friendships you can have in your thirties…you might not see each other as much as you see your friends in your 20s (we keep the love alive with snarky texts and Facebook comments), but you can deliver a gift almost two years late and still get hugs and love for it. We always pick up where we left off in the conversation.

victory garden 1

I’m working on a new quilt! This is such amazing news as it is the first quilt I’ve been able to share since the Double Rainbow quilt (which I finished back in April). I have one quilt out to a magazine, hopefully that will be published early next year. And I’ve been working on another one for a magazine, too. I can’t share those, so this is only the second quilt of 2014 that I can post photos of.

I never posted about this! Man, I am so behind. This has been sitting in my drafts since May. It was the first thing I put in my shop, and then somehow I never got this actual post up.
