Redundant, right? Not really. Blair and I (well, Blair, mostly) are in the middle of a project that I can't WAIT to show you, but until then I thought I'd ease the wait by showing you something that I have actually completed. I made it to go with the larger project that Blair is constructing.
I doubt you were expecting a quilt. All you fabulous quilters out there are probably unimpressed, but we love it! It turned out really well. I haven't made a quilt in 8 years, and the last one I did was a patchwork that I cut and pieced and stitched entirely by hand. It was also a queen sized. This is actually a crib-sized/lap throw size, and it's just perfect to sit on the couch right now until it's permanent home is ready (and, no, it won't be in the nursery). I got the fabric at Joann's and loosely used the instructions from here to make it. It took all of three hours, but then, I cheated and stitched the binding on with my machine.
