I'm finally sewing again. A new project is on my table. A pair of colleagues of my husband and myself got their third child last week. Already in March, when she told us about the pregnancy, I asked if she wanted me to make a cribquilt for her. She accepted and I started to plan. I wanted to make something unique for her and that was incredibly difficult. I guess I've been procrastinating all this time, but last week, when the baby boy was born, I decided to really give it some attention.
This is what I'm going for. The coloured fabrics are from my Jinny Beyer collection. I'm putting a 4.5 inch teal border outside this center. I plan to quilt teddies in the beige centers and otherwise do some lines diagonally in the coloured squares. Hopefully it will be ready within the beginning of December.
This one has been a really pain to figure out, so I guess it's right, the saying that states that being an artist is 5 percent talent and 95% hard work....
