I wanted to share with you the quilts I made in 2009. As I was counting them up, I kept wondering why I wasn't that "productive" that year. And then I remembered I was pregnant most of the year and then had a newborn for the remainder of the year! :) Oh yeah....
Through the magic of the Internet, I was commissioned to make this quilt for a woman in California. I want to say this was a wedding gift for a couple to celebrate their dogs (and the dogs of family members also, I believe). Of course, it was something I'd never done before and I thought it was extremely challenging to incorporate the customers wants with something that also fit my personal design aesthetic.
This was a quilt I made for a cousin's baby. The mama worked with me to tell me what she wanted, a traditional Irish Chain in unconventional colors. I loved the way it turned out and was really happy with how the orange peel quilting worked!
Even though the baby I'd had a month earlier was named Jace, this baby quilt was actually for a friend's baby. My Jace is still waiting on his quilt, I've promised myself I'd have it done by his 6th birthday (in a few months). The top is complete, I just need to quilt and bind it. :)
I made this for a cousin's baby. Large-scale prints can be so much fun!
This baby quilt was made for yet another cousin's baby. I love them all. The babes, that is... and the cousins. :)
What can I tell you? There was a baby boom in our family! Yes, another cousin's baby.
This was a quick baby quilt gift for a friend at church. I made strategic use of leftover fabrics from other projects.
