Life got busy, almost to the point of overwhelming, and my sewing machine made two unexpected trips to the repair shop. I made it through all this and I am proud to announce that I have (at last) finished my block. That's right, we were making just a simple block... Here's the pattern by Adrianne at Little Bluebell with its own little story. The original was a little pillow. What did Denise make? Here it is (along with her adventure in making this little gem).
What did Joy do? I promise I started off thinking 'little pillow' - something to give a friend who likes to read in bed so she could prop up her book. But as I played with the fabric something else came to mind, as you can see in this post from July. If I bought just a couple of yards of fabric I could make a blanket. Off I went in search of more of the MODA 'little apples' fabric. (This was the year I learned that fabric lines can come and go quickly.) All I could find was a few fat quarters of the printed white, a few more of the gray fabrics, and less than three yards of the green.
This "Mommie Blanket" is for Allison, a new friend of mine. She recently had her second baby - two under three. I figure if anyone could use a blankie it would be this sweet (and brave!) young woman.

Here is it, almost the end of the year, and I have finally finished this little quilt. Many thanks to Denise, Barbara, and Adrianne.
