A blanket for "Baby Mac"

While the thermometer hovered around zero all day, I stowed myself away in my studio, with the space heater, and devoted the day to careful piecing and precise stitching. 143 playful little squares, and so many good thoughts for the family-to-be filled my head. I love making gifts.

The prints were all sitting (like ducks in a row) on the sale rack of my local fabric store. It took me about two minutes to grab an armload and head to the cutting table. All but one is from Windham's Brights Circa 1930 collection. I love how cheerful and boisterous they are, and maybe a little Asian? They remind me of origami paper. Good fabric stores are easy places to get inspiration, lemme tell you.

And I guess I should explain about the name? Well, Mom and Dad's last name is McNamara, and they've chosen to be surprised as to the sex of their child. Hence, Baby Mac. I can't wait to meet him or her!
