One of my closest friends had a baby. And I haven’t sent her a single thing to recognize that! I had good intentions, really. I started this quilt back in September. I finished the top and the quilting back in September. The baby was born in November and yet my little quilt sat without any attention paid to it.
Sewing on binding is not my strong suit. In fact, I’d say I probably say I hate to sew on binding by hand. But my machine-sewn binding just does not look quite as nice. So this little fella’s birthday present has been sitting on my to-do list for months now.
I plunked myself down in front of a few episodes of Dexter and checked this off my to-do list. Is it weird to watch a show about a serial killer while lovingly hand-sewing baby gifts? Even though it’s a few months late, I don’t think the little guy will mind.
