I’ve been asked to make a few baby quilts which is turning out to be such a fun task. I’m sure many quilters, sewers, knitters, and crafters of all sorts will agree that conceiving of a design is one of the most delightful parts of the process– and baby quilts let you do it over and over in shorter amounts of time!
I’m calling this quilt, a compilation of several sources of inspiration, the Bouncing Balls baby quilt.
I’m sure the logic behind the name is pretty clear.
I happen to live right next door to a playground. One thing I’ve learned from this is that little kids love to scream. Not in an angry or upset way– it’s more of an excited, anticipatory sort of screaming. It may sound odd, but it’s actually a joyful sound that drifts up to our 5th floor apartment every day during recess (which I swear has gotten a lot longer since I was in school.)
Turns out, playgrounds are also fun places to photograph quilts, though I’m definitely not the right size for monkey bars, slides, and other various climbing contraptions– getting a good vantage point for these shots was somewhat hazardous.
