A Quilt for Torin
Luckily, we get to see him for his first birthday this week. Sometimes things work out: this year my life is much more calm and I finished the quilt. Here it is. It measures 34" x 48". It's machine stitched and quilted so it will hopefully hold up for many washings over the years.
It's made of blues and greens and shirtings I had on hand.
I gave a presentation about quilt labels this week, which got me thinking about how to label this quilt. I decided to cut out the number 1 shape and sign that. I stitched it on by machine too. I think I'll go over it again to darken up the words...
