Two years ago, I bought the fabric for this quilt when I was giving my bedroom a makeover. But…I never got around to using it.
Last year, when I was working full time, I carved out little 20 minute blocks of time at the end of the day to do A LOT of cutting and piecing and sewing….just to work with my hands a little. It felt simple and easy and calming.
Two weeks ago, I got out all of the blocks I made and decided to go ahead and finish this one up. We could use a new blanket to be our watching-TV-and-snuggling blanket. The one we’ve been using is quickly falling apart.
Two hours ago, I finished it! Before I even finished, it had already been snuggled with, picnicked on and used to wrap up a rascally four year old burrito-style. It seems my kids (and…well…me) don’t see what’s the harm in using a quilt that isn’t quite finished. :) Well, now it’s done!.
As you can see, Isaac played a starring role in the photo shoot. Hopefully, you can see the quilt too. ;)
Have a great weekend!
