I found some flannel baby blankets and sheets at Value Village a while ago and was really inspired to make a super cozy quilt that Lucy will enjoy for (hopefully) the rest of her life. The flannel was really hard to work with since it was old and had been washed so much it had lost it’s thickness, which made it stretch out of shape a lot.
I’m super happy with how it turned out, including all it’s imperfections. To be honest, I thought every step I went through was the hardest and kept thinking it would never work out. I need to learn to cut myself a break, I’m just learning and nothing is perfect the first time you do it.
I’m so proud that I was able to finish a quilt that I think is beautiful and made with love for the most important person in my life. There were many nights after Lucy went to bed where I was so frustrated with how the day had turned out, I would start working on this quilt and all my stress went away. How could you possibly be in a bad mood when creating something so important?
