Happy chaos stamp/star quilt
Okay, so I actually have one more quilt to share this year.
And yes, it's almost more of a placemat. :) But it took so. much. work! So we're splitting the difference and calling it a baby quilt. A happy chaos stamp baby quilt. With some star bursts in there too, just for fun.
My idea started when I found those wonderfully colorful houses this summer on my annual Utah fabric hunt. I was pretty sure I had a bunch of colorful scraps I could use (and use up!) to surround them somehow. Sure enough, collection was pretty easy once I started digging through my scrap piles back home. It was the looooong process of sewing together each 2.5 square I wasn't anticipating. Took forever. Like, maybe 20 hours, over the course of many weeks, maybe more? I don't like to think about it. :) It's over now, all's forgotten, thank heavens.
I had an additional quilt holder helper the morning of this shoot. Pretty sure he was camouflaged in all that color, but he was there. And here's the back, a bit of a (still colorful) sigh of relief, no?
Although it isn't quite big enough to fit around both bodies (hence the placemat imagery), Annie managed to snuggle in for a few minutes before it was sent off to its new owner (my VT partner who was pleased that it almost exactly fits into a pack-n-play. Thinks I did it that way on purpose, ha!).
A few details here for me to remember: I know the houses get a little lost in the smattering, but up close they are still soooo delicious. And I'm slowly but surely using my little mer-made tags from AC and her mama. Love you gal.
