We finally broke down and bought a bunk bed for Junebug and Monkeyboy, and I have it perfectly pictured, in my mind’s eye, how I want their room to look when it’s clean and prettified. (Hint: Not like how it looks now!)
Part of that ideal look includes handmade quilts on each of their beds, made by their loving mommy. Here’s the first half of that dream, in progress:
I need to make twelve of these little hexagon blossoms, and so far I’ve made…nine, I think. (Writing this post during recess, there’s no time for details!) I am head over heels in love with English Paper Piecing! It’s my new knitting–it’s portable! That’s always been my bone of contention with quilting–you can’t take it places with you. BUT NOW I CAN!!!
Isn’t the fabric the cutest? (I adore the little squat robot!) It’s the “Rocket Age” collection distributed by Riley Blake Designs. I’ve also thrown in a few scraps from Riley Blake’s “One for the Boys,” and scraps from Michael’s worn-out work shirts. I’ve wanted to make a quilt from his old work shirts for FOREVER. So happy, happy about this project!
