gifted




so this was the project i was so diligently working on. a baby quilt! i gave it to the happy recipient today, and he acted as happy as a man could when receiving a hot pink handmade blanket. this gift was surprisingly easy although time consuming, but i didn't do any of that fancy quilting stitching...(the other side is a soft fleecy fabric and those dark dark squares are velvet.)

honestly i loved this project, the soft stuffed blocks were just for fun and they're filled with 100% cotton batting which wasn't nearly as much as i thought it would be. if you're ever in nyc, check out 'the city quilter' since i bought most of my supplies there and they have a pretty decent selection of fabrics. that's my version of a shout out.

currently reading: the Bible
currently listening to: Ben Folds (the Billy Joel of genX, imo)

Love it! The blocks are kind of like the Taggies blocks Carter has, he also has a puppy with tags sewn all over it. Babies love to chew on the tags for some reason!

it is really depressing when you realize Ben Folds, one of the great loves of your life, is not exactly child friendly...
