quilting for the first time
Phoebe has been in a bassinet at the foot of our bed pretty much since birth. We figured it would be much easier than having her in the room with her brother. Way to much travel for me with midnight feedings. She has been pretty good about how often she nurses and she is outgrowing her first bed quickly. So, I've been planning her move for a month or two and came to the part where she was going to need some proper bedding. I took out Sam's old crib set and took some bits apart and covered some others. I used a simple patchwork pattern and came up with this. Pretty easy considering there were all just straight seams. I really enjoy finished products, but I usually end up fighting my sewing machine. Knitting is probably my craft of choice. You never need to check the tension on your needles. Or re-thread them.
I just watched Giada make this. Now I have to make it.
