Baby quilt

Summer is definitely a slow sewing time for me. There's a few birthdays to prepare for, but otherwise I'm pretty much content to close the door on my sewing room and turn my creative energies to the garden.

This one, however, could not pass unmade. This is for my expectant friend Stephanie, the one whose shower I catered back in July. The main front fabric and all the "flowers" are from my stash. The back is pale green minky fabric; the trim is jumbo purple rick-rack.

As with most of my hand-sewing projects, it's done some travelling. It's been to Syracuse and Oswego, and to Canandaigua for a Phish show. It was with us on the Fourth. Next week, it'll complete the last long leg of its journey in an airmail envelope bound for Saskatoon. Hopefully, it'll get there before the baby does!

Welcome to the world, Ximena Katherine. I can't wait to meet you!

you're amazing but let's be honest... her name is pretty amazing, too. If I do say so myself. ;)
