this quilt actually has two fronts. which is fun. but hard to quilt i wasnt sure which side to cater to if you know what i mean (and you probably dont).

so i had this idea for a quilt. it involved sewing strips together then cutting those strips and sewing those together and then it would more or less be squares. i might have repeated the process a third time. anyway, here is the result. what i learned from this is that you should probably use a wider variety of fabric than say i used. i would recommend at least ten different colors.
you cant see this but i bound it with a flower stitch. which is cute. really it looks like an oversized place mat so i think its pretty versatile.

here are the last two quilts i have made...one is for teresa for her birthday. i realized i sewed the soft side on the inside and it resulted in a christmas fight with me and my mom. however, that was the only fight on christmas so i am going to go ahead and count that as a holiday success. it will just haunt me forever. (i wish my mom read this and felt marginally guilty but she doesnt so i will have to try other passive aggressive ways to communicate with her).
this was the quilt i imagined would be all stripes.
and this one is baby welkerjensons quilt. i made it sort of small. which seems like a terrible idea reflecting on the heights of her parents...baby welkerjenson i apologize in advance if this quilt doesnt cover your toes.
and baby welkerjenson i hope you like purple and pink and the feminist movement.
