Our baby, that is, but thankfully, not this quilt! Apparently some of my projects take as long to cook as my babies; this one was started right after I found out I was pregnant. It's been sitting, fully quilted (by a lovely local lady, not myself alas) in my workroom for months; all that remained was the binding. With an hour and a half of babysitting by the girl across the street, the binding was made, sewn on that night, and I've enjoyed handstitching the rest in the evenings.
I love these little girls all over the quilt, there are twelve of them, all different, and someone really poured some love into the applique and embroidery. I purchased these squares last summer on an antiques jaunt, and they are still one of my most favorite purchases!
What great finds have you made recently?
