Baby Quilt

My friend is having a baby in December.  Being the slacker that I am I waited til the weekend of the shower to make her gift.  It's not like I had plenty of warning to get the quilt made.  I mean seriously, I knew before she was pregnant that she was trying to have a baby.  So Friday afternoon I went to the fabric store and picked out some gender nuetral fabrics in bright primary colors. 
Cut all the fabric Friday night, made and quilted the quilt Saturday, and hand sewed the binding Sunday before leaving for the shower.  I love how it turned out. 
It felt good to make something, haven't had the time to fire up the sewing machine since back in the spring.  Hopefully I'll be able to stick with updating the blog and doing some quilting through the winter.  When Spring comes again and it's calving season, and planting season all bets are off again.

The one with the endless half square triangles...

I wanted to make something in black and white.  I was a little obsessed with all the chevron quilts I was seeing on blogs, so it seemed a perfect fit.  I think I'll be making black and white half square triangles forever since I decided making this quilt for my bed would be a great idea.

It's been a long time

I haven't been on a blog or flickr for 6 or 7 months.  Life got a little out of control and I just wasn't able to get online for these things for so long.  It's been crazy.   I haven't touched my poor sewing machine in forever, it probably forgets how to work.
