Small Quilts

I'm a bit frustrated that I've only made small quilts so far this year.  I have big UFOs, and I have big ideas, but my time in the sewing room is still limited (though Jack did like it when I set up his floor mat play thingy in there), so I shouldn't be too hard on myself.

I am making this quilt for my cousin's baby, born just 6 weeks before Jack, way far away in Illinois.  I haven't seen this cousin for a long time, and I don't know if our sons will ever get a chance to meet each other, but I care, and want her to know that, so I'm making a quilt.  I don't quite know how else to bridge the distance between us.

It's a simple sashed four-patch, wavy line quilting on a diagonal this time.  Judging by how fast Jack is growing, little Jason probably won't be small enough to use this for more than another year or so, but I hope he likes playing with it anyway.
Oh, and I'm finally getting the hang of Instagram.  It's awfully fun and a heck of a lot easier to post progress there than it is to sit down, edit photos and write a blog post.  If you're on IG too, come find me.  (Don't worry, it won't make me stop blogging.  It's too hard to type the entire story behind a quilt on my phone anyway.  It's just for fun in between..)


  1. I cant think of a better way to show you care, than with a quilt, and a cute one at that!
