a baby quilt~

well, i certainly didn't mean to stop quilting.  really.  i just find this season of my life to be particularly challenging.  the demands of motherhood keep me hopping, and although i thought i would have more time for sewing as my kids got older, i find they need me more as a presence... to take a walk with, to read to, to take skating or swimming, etc.  they need me to be more present in their lives... available.

making this quilt was pure joy.  a lovely couple in our church expecting their second child, a girl.  i was completely inspired by emily of mle knits and her crosses quilt. i raided my stash and found a kona curry and some prints from the innocent crush line as well as some others that really seemed to work well together.  i pieced the crosses section with three inch squares and bound it with signals, from innocent crush.
