For those of you who are my seven regular readers of domesticat.net, this post isn't for you; this post is a rehash of some previous posts, plus photos, for the Quilt Bloggers' Festival. It's for a lot of people who didn't see this little quilt while it was in progress.
This is another quickie baby quilt -- quickie because this little girl was just born, and babies don't stay babies for long!
This quilt is an odd combination: the gentle florals of Liberty fabric with the unusual patternings of mathematical tilings. Okay, it's odd to anyone else but ME. Here's the pattern I'm using to make this quilt:
This quilt definitely wasn't planned, but sometimes, when life hands you not-matching lemons, you grab a sharpie and a glass of tasty booze and say, "Fine, how can I make this work?"
Well, it didn't really happen like that. If you read "But it's awesome when it happens!" then you know the story: the tale of two pinks that didn't work together, and the call to Margo at reproductionfabrics.com to say ACK SAVE ME PLZ. With a small application of my credit card, fabrics were acquired.
My first commission! Tim, who got Lost in Translation, asked if I'd be willing to pick up a small quilt commission for a niece due in just a few months. I agreed. Something for a girl, but he left the fabrics and the pattern up to me.
Stripes for the back, simple squares for the front

Completed and given away
This is just a quick little entry for a quick little quilt. I'm going to make a few simple, easy lap-sized quilts for our living room, so we can discard a couple of old polyester blankets that have outlived their natural lifespan. I'm wanting to spend more time practicing my quilting, so having a few quilts that I'm keeping means I can practice my stitching on a non-critical project -- I have two coming up that are heavily dependent on the quality of the quilting stitches, and I needed some practice time.
