My partner has a friend who is expecting a baby boy, and I’ve been so frantic lately that I’ve had to sew constantly to keep myself from having a melt down. In the January issue of Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting, there was a pattern for a baby quilt that used up fabric leftovers. I quickly cut the pieces and finished the quilt in less than a week. It’s kind of cool to look at this quilt and see the fabric used in other projects. To personalize it, I appliqued a sailboat and embroidered the baby’s name. The variegated thread created a most interesting effect on the back of the quilt, which is a snuggly flannel.
