This is my very first quilt. Sort of. I started it, and then the I Spy frenzy overtook it, and it was pushed aside for a bit.
I was inspired to make my first (second? first? first. Let’s call it first. I’ve confused myself) quilt by my Mom and by AMH. I/we lovelovelovelove Good Folks as previously discussed on our blog and Adrianna and I are both in a period of mourning over the discontinuation of the line. This quilt was totally influenced, of course, by AMH’s folk dance quilt. Had this not been my first/second quilt, it might look more like hers. But I went a little nuts in the process, and… well… it evolved. Whether I originally meant for it to or not. This quilt bears more of the markings of a learning curve in progress.
So glad to finally have this in her hands. She slept with it the night I gave it to her. I’d call that a success. I’m dying to start another quilt, but I still have a few weeks of relocation upheaval left. In the meantime, we’ll make up for lost time with my Mom. Fortunately, M is still deliciously cute.
