leon's quilt top

leon's quilt top

here's a sneak peek of what i'm (very slowly) working on right now, an oversized cot quilt for a sweet little boy who is moving into his toddler bed soon. i'm almost done the quilt top, just need to find the perfect backing to get this one done - oh and some, time. yes, time would be nice. i was hoping to get this year's valentine oobees done but i am out of wool stuffing and really not up to making toys again yet after the huge binge in the weeks before christmas. so i guess my next shop update won't be for awhile, i'm thinking probably a couple of weeks before easter. and unfortunately, i can't take any more custom orders for the foreseeable future - i already have a waiting list for quilts that will take me to next christmas! plus i want to make a few things for the new baby - a girl!! did i mention we're having another girl?? yay! - and there are all those patterns i keep talking about writing... i need a clone, i think. maybe two.

  1. Congratulations on having another girl, how wonderful! Your quilt looks great and I dont know how you manage to do so much. I am sure you will achieve what you want with a little "slow time". Wouldnt it be nice if at the end of each day we could ask for a few extra hours!

  2. Firstly Leslie, congratulations, how exciting that Mae is going to be a big sister to a little sister. I have two sisters myself and it's a special, special thing!

    (not that I am planning another pregnancy for you! that could read kind of funny!)

    And secondly, that quilt is AMAZING - it is going to be an heirloom, I love the fabrics you've chosen and - wow it just really sings to me. I adore it. You are one totally clever lady! x

    i am very secretly hoping for another girl, too - ella is just so cute these days that it's hard not to want another just like her. but a boy...a boy would be something new and exciting, too! here's to finding out in a couple of days...

  7. Congratulations! Girls are so wonderful, and that is what I'm hoping for. (I'm working on my 3rd, already have 1 boy and 1 girl.) Of course I would be thrilled either way. And it seems we're due about the same time, I'm June 5th. Good luck to you. :)

  17. EXCELLENT stuff! Congrats on the girl news - sisters are fab (once you get over that pre-teen/teen dip when they are way daggy).

    That quilt is gorgeous. Once you think you have its measure, you spot another little surprise.

  18. oo, i can spot a square of marimekko fabric there! i saw one of your oobees on apartment therapy with the same print as a top (described as japanese on etsy) so i thought i'd let you know that it's a vintage finnish desing by maija isola for marimekko from 1969 called 'muija' (='broad' as in a woman). just thought you'd like to know, if you don't already. lovely quilt!
