I haven’t been making a lot lately because I’ve been spending a lot of time prepping so I can eventually make stuff. However, Val and my mom have been at it.
Val made this self binding receiving blanket for her friends who are going to have a baby soon. She used the Missouri Star tutorial and I believe this is her third one!
If you remember my churn dash quilt, then you should know that this was the inspiration for it. Mom started making churn dashes using the red, black, and cream fabrics and I couldn’t resist how awesome they looked. This is going to be a throw for their living room.
I’m showing this because I know part of the surprise has already been spoiled. Mom is making this for my sister’s husband who is a little obsessed with squirrels. She wasn’t supposed to know, but we were in a group text message the other day and Mom sent this picture so the beans were spilled. I’m pretty confident my sister’s husband does not read my blog. Dustin, if you do read this, I’m flattered, but I would really like to know why. Also, sorry for ruining this surprise for you.
