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.

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.
You guys! I loooove these Stately Type Moda shirts. Jaybird Quilts regrammed a photo of these, and I just preordered the Maker and “Do-Re-Mi” designs. If you preorder by tomorrow (the shirts will ship in late April) you can get 20% off with the code MODA20. Find the Stately Type Moda shirts here.

I finished her dress! I used McCall’s M6541 pattern, but I just made the basic little pinafore dress with it. No applique or Ric Rac. This is the same pattern my mom used for a blue version of this dress last summer, and Hannah is taller than the biggest dress size for the pattern now.
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.
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.
