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.

H went through almost a solid month of nonstop teething right around the end of the school year, which just turned things upside down a little.

The house has been in a state while I finished up the job, so…in general it’s been a little chaotic around here since, oh…mid March.
