Another Interruption

Hannah's quilt has had to take a back seat for a little bit. Our dear friends Ron and Nizida are expecting. We know it is a boy and have been angling for him to be named JoeMichael. I am making him a quilt, Sailboats & Stars. Here is the current shape of the quilt. All the pieces have been cut and some of it sewn together. It's looking quite nice.

This shot gives a better idea of what it will look like hanging on the wall. I am designing the quilt in such a way that for JoeMichael's first few years it can hang on the wall and once he moves into a big boy bed, it will be able to be used as a bed cover.

Detail of one of the sailboats. This one has already been appliqued on. Some of the others haven't been completely shaped yet.

Detail of a star. Each one is composed of 13 pieces of material. There are 14 total stars.

JoeMichael is due in October. I hope to have this finished in time for his entry into the world.
