* speedy baby quilt

Posted on November 26th, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

I made this quilt for my new niece, who is about T minus 4 months old. We had a surprise baby shower over Thanksgiving. It was a surprise to me too when the invite came in the mail, because I thought I still had 4 months to procrastinate. I’d been planning on making a quilt anyway, but with only a few weeks, I didn’t have time for anything grandiose. I’m quite happy with what I came up with, though. It’s made of 4 inch patches using the leftover fabrics from the tulip quilt. I like laying out quilts. It’s like a great big logic puzzle. I couldn’t find a perfect solution to this one, so there are a few blocks of the same color closer to each other than I’d prefer and parts of it are a bit too ordered. It’s all machine done except the binding, which I had to handsew on the back. That’ll be the last binding I ever hand sew, I can tell you that. I’m getting better at the quilting every time I make one. Most of my block intersections actually line up this time. Next quilt to tackle: one for myself, made from blocks found at my great grandmother’s house.

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
