Fishman overalls

Hi friends, I would first like to say, welcome to my new blog! I made the move over to a self hosted page, so please bear with me – I’m still trying to iron out all the wrinkles (See what I did there?) I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last posted.

Last fall my favorite female cousin (also my only female cousin) and her husband had their first child. As a Christmas gift I wanted to make the little one a quilt. I’ve never made a quilt before, but I figured, “hey, how hard can it be?” Turns out, it’s not too difficult, just time consuming. Continue reading “Sunset quilt”
