Almost one year ago, I started piecing wonky log cabin blocks for a crib quilt for the Sprout. In the evenings after a long day in the schools, I would drag my pregnant body to the sewing machine and put together a block. I intended for the finished quilt to have 12 blocks and I worked slowly and steadily up until block 9. And then two things happened: 1) block 9 was really ugly and I got stuck on it, and 2) I had a baby.
Fast forward to January 2010. I am determined to finish this crib quilt while she is still in a CRIB for goodness' sake! I still had the first 9 blocks hanging on the wall in my studio/office (also known as Craft Hell because I am tormented by it's disorder). I finally decided to just throw out block 9 and piece a new block. And I did. And then I didn't feel like piecing any more wonky log cabin blocks. So I didn't.
Here's the top to the crib quilt. All 9 blocks of it. The light situation these days in the Pacific Northwest is just pathetic, so let's pretend that this quilt top is perfectly pressed and that the sunlight is streaming in from the window on the left, ok? Squint your eyes a little bit, it helps. There you go.
More coming soon, peeps.
