Oh yea, I have a gazillion different projects going on... all the time. This is nothing new for me, nor is it anything I'm terribly uncomfortable with (obviously).
But *this* is why I quilt.
A friend of mine just had her baby a couple days ago. They were keeping the name a secret until she was born (healthy, complication free delivery! yea for mama and baby!)... when I saw the announcement, I don't know...
Something about her name.*
I wasn't planning on making her a quilt, but with a name like Jubilee??? I had to. (Besides, her mama is pretty great)
I printed out enough letters from Kelly's Wonky Alphabet pattern (OK, so I might have had to reprint a few of them a couple times -- I'm still not great with paper piecing)
I've been wanting to use this color combo forever. New baby = perfect excuse. :)
I can't wait to get it all cut and sewn together! ♥
The end of July is quickly approaching us! I've got some goals to finish before it sneaks away completely!
(And I really did have every good intention of not starting another quilt until that one was finished... but alas... babies come first around here) ;)
*I don't remember all the specifics from when I studied it back in college, but the year of Jubilee, Biblically, is a time of renewal, freedom and celebration. Makes me especially proud of that first "e" in her name, and all the significant words. :)
