I made something! Lately, crafting really has been my oasis. Recovering from our busy daytime routine results in me focusing my precious evening-times on crafting. So I've actually made a few things, even if I haven't found the energy to blog about it. Here's hoping that this post will help me turn a new leaf and start getting into a blogging routine again.
Anyway, I've been making stuff-- even quilts! This one is for Leander, the new baby brother of one of our preschool friends.
I used the "Storytime Squares Quilt" tutorial from made by Rae. It was super simple and very quick to put together!
The print fabrics were leftover from a quilt I made a couple of years ago. The solids were in my stash. No new fabric was purchased in the making of this quilt. YAY!
Being as it is a small quilt, I went ahead and practiced my quilting by doing some leafy vines and some simple curves in the blocks. I think it turned out pretty nice (though it is maybe a bit much design-wise considering the simplicity of the pattern).
The baby's name is Leander, which is Greek for "Man of Lions." It inspired my fabric choices, and my label.
And look! I even had a special helper during my photo shoot. Big Bear loves getting involved whenever I get out the camera.
I hope baby Leander enjoys his new blankie!
