My neighbors – at least for the next 4 weeks – are having a baby! About a month ago I felt like this particular little girl required a quilt from me.

Baby Ari’s quilt was made by stitching swaths of fabric together into one long rectangle. Then I folded it up and sliced off strips of various widths. Those strips then came together in a sort of log cabin pattern. Backing is a vintage sheet, binding is black and scraps, and the finished quilt is not quite 41 inches square.

Ari’s baby shower is Sunday. It will be my last shower for awhile since, from what I understand, baby showers are an American cultural phenomenon. I am so happy to be able to celebrate my friends in this distinctly American way!
