I had bought all the fabric to make this for my friend’s baby, who then arrived a full 4 weeks early! I had to make the whole thing in one afternoon, in advance of the baby shower which suddenly became the baby-welcoming party! This was a challenge as I’ve never attempted applique before. The advantage was that I was able to include the baby’s name in the design, which I wouldn’t have done if she’d been on time…but the disadvantage was that as with all things made in a hurry, I was not entirely happy with the end result and would have liked to have had more time to fiddle and make it perfect.
One of the most beloved American designers passed last night. We look back at a few of his designs.
