Holy Moly, I’m back. Maybe not back to “crazyobsessedashleymustmakeallthequiltsintheworld” back, but definitely back to: I’ve turned on the freaking sewing machine for the first time in 3 months.
And it feels good!
Today I have two finished baby quilts that might have taken for.ever. to make. But, one made it a few weeks before baby and the other made it the week after baby was born, so it’s still a win, right?
Baby Girl Quilt was a project I worked on this summer with my mom. She and I picked out the fabric together, the design, and then I was able to cut the quilt and she sewed it together. Finishing this quilt up made me miss summer and I’m already looking forward to going home again so that I can spend time sewing with her. I love quilting memories. It was also an opportunity for me to break out Denyse Schmidt’s Piccadilly line. I love it. it’s so adorable!
Just looking at these pictures makes me want to go do some FMQing! I love the freedom and how it looks when it’s all finished.
Then, onto baby boy quilt! One of my favorite friends from my summers as a camp counselor recently reached out to me to commission a quilt. I was so honored, and I had so much fun picking fabrics. She had a few ideas of things she liked, and hopefully she loves this quilt as much as I do! The pictures aren’t the best because I wasn’t able to get home before the sun went down, and I really just wanted to mail this one off! I’m proud that I mixed up fabric lines and just used a color scheme.
I’ll be linking these babies up to all the Friday parties going on today: TGIFF and Crazy Mom Quilts. I can’t wait to sit down and read all the other finishes this week. I’ve really missed quilting, blogging, and my fabric friends.
