Handmade Beginnings by Anna Maria Horner this summer, I have been wanting to make one! I decided I better make it soon before she was too old for sleepsacks! She is borderline too old at 13 months, but I love how she looks in them. I am not ready for her to have a blanket in the bed because that means she is no longer a baby.:)
So she gets to wear a sleepsack a little bit longer. I used the pattern from Handmade Beginnings but added about ten inches in length. The pattern is for a 0-3 month old. I also added another inch to the sides, but I don't know if I needed to do that. I can't wait to see her bundled up in it tonight ready for bed.
I also finished the quilting on my postage stamp quilt last weekend, and I am slowly handsewing the binding on. It is taking forever! I have put in about 5 hours, and I am not finished with one side yet. I have been working on it a little each night after Zerah goes to bed. It is nice to have a project to work on in front of the T.V.
In addition, I recently stumbled upon the Front Range Modern Quilt Guild! Modern Quilt Guilds have been popping up all over the country, but there wasn't one here yet. Friday, I stumbled upon it, and signed up immediately! So, if you are in the Front Range area and like modern quilting, go sign up! I am so excited there is a chapter nearby!
