Soooo, by now you’ve probably heard that QuiltCon acceptances went out last night. My entry – Take the A-Train – was not accepted. And I’m think I’m really close to being okay with that. It’s becoming very apparent that whoever is in charge of these things was going for a certain aesthetic, and mine didn’t fit.
It’s okay. Not everyone can like 12 shades of yellow all mushed together. But it still makes me happy. And so many wonderful people told me how much they love it too. 🙂 Jess at Quilty Habit did a great post, as did Jess at The Elven Garden. So, after much thinking, and grumbling to Karin and Stephanie (thank you ladies!), I’m just going to keep making quilts that make me happy, and excited to finish, and wholly all around me. So if I don’t have to mail them off to a show, shucks darn, I’ll just have to keep it. 🙂
And now for something completely different. This is the queen sized quilt I’m quilting for my grandmother. Let me clarify – my grandmother pieced it, I’m quilting it for her. Just a simple loopy pattern with a few stars.
Gotta keep moving on with those lists, right? Also, at different times in the last few weeks several friends and cousins have announced their pregnancies, so we all know what that means right? Baby quilts! Which are super exciting to plan, because they are always fun and happy, and they’re small and easy to quilt.
What are some of your favorite baby quilt patterns?
