Sophie’s quilt

My crafty life hasn’t been too exciting for a while due to the rest of my life using up all of my mental and physical energy (I suppose I can’t complain too much, since it’s the non-crafty partof my life that gives me money to buy things like yarn). There has been lots of sock-knitting, but nothing that requires pattern-reading or much counting.

I have, however, finished a baby quilt that has been years in the making. A few years ago I drove to Duluth for my friend L.’s wedding. On the way, I stopped at the Norske Nook for some delicious pie. Located conveniently nearby was a quilt store, where I adored the bird and yellow stripey fabric and decided to buy some and save it for a baby quilt for the baby I knew L. and her husband J. wanted to have at some point in the future. Sophie was born in January, and I’ve finally finished and mailed the quilt.

    Very cute! I like the stripes in the border – I’m always a little timid about using stripes but always like them when I see others using them.

    It looks great! They will be thrilled! And you did have to put in the link to the Norske Nook, didn’t you?
