Growing Pains

Lucy has been getting use out of it. Perfect for her dolls!
My friend Caroline is due to have her baby girl in the next couple of weeks. She sent me some fabric to make her a nursing cover. I also wanted to try a small patchwork quilt, and have discovered some things along the way. Learn from your mistakes, right? This time I used a rotary cutter and board (watch the fingers!) which helped me get exact sizes and nice edges. But next time I need to make the squares even larger to account for how much you lose when you sew them all together. Seems obvious, I know. Measure twice, cut once. But it is fun experimenting and in the meantime, baby has a little blankie with colors inspired by vintage wine.
