This was one heck of a fun quilt! One of my close friends had a baby earlier this year (who is absolutely adorable!) and asked if I would make a twin-sized quilt for him. We picked a twin size because it seemed “the perfect” size… Both of us are in our mid/late twenties and both of us have a handmade blanket we use on the couch, all wrapped up in the cooler months, and both of those just happen to be twin-size. Let me tell you, getting to make quilts for babies is the best — especially when it’s the larger size quilts. Just think of all the memories they’re going to create with that qult! From blanket forts to wintertime snuggles, comfort when they’re sick or hurt.. the endless possibilities are just so endearing. I’m shipping it out in the mail tomorrow, and I’m so excited for my girlfriend to receive it! I hope it brings Silas many, many years of warmth and cuddles and love.

The backing is a flannel sheet bordered with brown flannel. I absolutely love how it turned out. Apparently, Sash does too!

The back — aren’t the colors just wonderful?

Embroidery. Easily one of my favourite parts. The embroidery was done on cotton, and then the cotton was fused to the quilt with no-sew fusing; I then stitched around the edges to give it a polished look.
