Gone Quiltin’ – Baby Quilts for All!

Sweet Tooth Quilt and Magnus

It’s hot outside and my wrists hurt!

This has been my basic lament/excuse for abandoning my knitting this summer. And it’s true—there’s heat waves happening all over, and I’ve been working on my laptop nonstop, which makes my wrists tired and sore. I know, I know… I should type on an ergonomic keyboard and wear wrist braces and all that jazz. But I like working on my couch, my feet kicked up. What’s the point of working from home if you can’t lounge on the couch, I say?

Anyway, the point is that I haven’t felt like knitting. But the crafting demon inside me must be fed, so what do I do? I start quilting. A LOT.

I’ve now made two baby quilts (from this great, free pattern) and I’m onto a third one of my own creation. And I’ve only been quilting for a month, people! That’s some quick project turnaround… I think I get what these quilting people have been raving about all this time!

Do any of you dabble in quilting? Have any tips or tricks for me?

    these quilts are so sweet. do you know the name of the chick and egg fabric? If like me I seem to lose the selvage with the name.
