Super Pink

It's been a long time coming but I have a few new things to show which have been held up by poor lighting and the necessity of secrecy.

The lighting situation hasn't improved (grim weather here in NYC) but the time had come to give this little guy away so I just had to deal. This is my long-ago started Hop Skip Jump Quilt. I actually finished all but a foot of the binding over a year ago, but since it had no recipient, I wasn't motivated to wrap it up. Enter a new baby girl for my good friend V, and I sprung into action.

This is actually the first real quilt I ever started, and it took me over 2 years to finish! Of course, I would do a million things differently if I were to restart it now (the quilting for one - I stitched in the ditch around each of the color blocks), but I do love it and hope it will keep the new babe warm and snuggly. Word is it's going to be hanging above her crib, which I take as a huge compliment.

And speaking of which, City Blocks got installed above the crib of its recipient and I think it looks great!

I'm going to wait for some good natural light to photograph the other two things I have to share (and another baby to be born), but stay tuned.
