The other day I bumped into an old friend. I don’t know her really well, but she’s one of those beautiful people who just make you feel good, and make you feel really special when they call you a friend. Turns out she’s pregnant, and so of course immediately after I saw her my mind starting buzzing with ideas of what I could make for her to celebrate the birth.
That night I was browsing through some beautiful quilts online and came across Elizabeth Hartman’s new quiltalong at Oh Fransson. The Billboard Quilt is not only gorg-e-ous but it uses Elizabeth’s “Map of the States” technique that I’m so keen to try.
So I’m hoping to do a baby quilt for my friend with a small number of letters (probably 6), using mostly scraps from my own humble stash, and some “borrowed” from my mum’s. Excited to get started on it, but determined that it won’t affect the other stuff I need to get done like study, work, etc.
Wish me luck!
