I haven’t really done any sewing for the baby yet, since we don’t know if it will be a boy or a girl. But of course, I’m itching to start sewing teeny tiny baby things! I decided washcloths would be a pretty safe option…because even if the baby doesn’t need all of these, they’ll make great gifts!
These washcloths are so quick and easy to make. If I hadn’t run out of the terry cloth backing, I’d probably have a much taller stack!
It was fun to pull out some of my favorite fabrics to combine for the patchwork top of each washcloth — some Heather Ross, a little Munki Munki, and some of Laurie Wisbrun’s Urban Circus, all backed with a really great organic cotton terry cloth by Michael Miller.
I’m not typically a washcloth-user, but these are so soft (and fun to look at!) that I now find myself trying to find reasons to need a washcloth! Sad, right?!
On an unrelated note, I’m thrilled to share that I have a little something in each of these wonderful magazines!
A big thank you to Alissa for including my interview in her wonderful article about modern quilting for Stitch magazine! (and thank you to all of you who have already written to congratulate me – it took me a long time to actually find a copy of Stitch!)
And another thank you to the wonderful folks at Interweave for including my Unfurnished quilt in the latest issue of International Quilt Festival: Quilt Scene. It’s so fun to see it in print!
