Baby Henry’s quilt

March 28, 2011

Right before I left on this current roadtrip (aka, quarterlife crisis), I whipped up a blankie for new baby Henry and his hot mama, Jen. It was the first thing I made using my new Janome DC 2010, which I bought at a liquidation sell for hella cheap while I was hopped up on crutches and all sorts of post-surgery painkillers. This is really the first quilt I’ve ever made besides the rag quilt, which was a little different because it didn’t require any mitering or binding or deal with any real layers.  I used the disappearing nine patch tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew and also hastily used her beginner’s guide to finishing quilts. It was really helpful, and maybe if I had had more than 6 sq ft and a flat surface that didn’t have a dog running all over it, it might’ve ended up a bit neater. I think it’s a little sloppy and I could use some grandma-like advice from someone more advanced, BUT I still really like it and it’s light and warm and delightful. Also the baby makes it looks really good.
