Over the last several years, my mom and I have started a tradition of working on a sewing project in the days after Christmas. This year, I had the perfect project - a quilt more than two years in the making. For my friend Sarah's baby shower, the attendees made hand-painted onesies. That baby has since been born, celebrated two birthdays, and outgrown her onesies by several inches (she's so tall now!).
I took all of the onesies and quilt fabric with me to Kansas and my mom and I set up an assembly line to make each of the blocks. I am so happy with the result! Now instead of old clothes in the closet, Clara has a quilt which she loves! When she is older, it will remind her of all the people who care about her.
