Have you ever improvised letters before? Try it. You will love it! It is such a fun project! Once again with this quilt as with my last, I enjoyed the process of creating it every step of the way, from picking out the fabrics and planning to constructing each letter to quilting the circles, as much as I am pleased with the finished object. Every night, I would work on a few letters. It was such a great way to end each day with an hour or so of sewing on a project that really engaged me.
This quilt was extra special for me because it was intended for a very good friend and her baby boy. This friend is a gem. She has always been kind and extremely generous to me (and to my kiddo). I wanted to make something unique and fun, something kinda playful but structured and modern. I think this fits that bill. I hope she loves it. I can't wait to meet her little one!
So the details: measuring 40 1/2 x 50 1/2 inches, my own design (improv letters), using a bunch of Kona cottons (Kona Coal for the background) and Michael Miller Ta-Dot! prints (with some scraps of Kei Honeycomb and Denyse Schmidt FMF here and there), backed with a Cloud 9 organic flannel bunny print (which I forgot to photograph - DOH!). It's a good size for a snuggly crib quilt that a little one will love come winter. And for now, it can be used as a visually-stimulating tummy-time playmat.
