First, baby quilts.

Another one went in the mail yesterday to a new baby soon to be born in Virginia to a Banana and her husband.  This little monkey could be a boy or a girl so I went for bright colors.  And monkeys.  I love the simplicity of it – I love straight-line quilting.  I think I need to do more of it.


One of my favorite parts of this quilt is the binding.  I was quilting along and wondering what I was going to use for the binding.  I wanted something that popped but couldn’t think of anything but the fabric already used in the quilt.  Then I remembered I had these awesome stripes which could not have matched any more perfectly.  Love it.


Second, saving babies.

*This is a shameless plug.*  I have to go to jail for babies.  Jail is a restaurant in Austin and the babies are ones helped by the March of Dimes.  The March of Dimes big fundraiser is the Jail and Bail.  Someone nominated me to go to “jail” for babies … and now I have to raise my bail.  Let it be known – I dislike asking people for money.  I’m swallowing it because of my role as a somewhat public figure in the community and the March of Dimes doing awesome things.   It is a super worthy cause and if you at all feel drawn to it, you can help “bail” me out here.  And if not, don’t feel bad.  [Jail is really just an hour of my time next Wednesday and apparently they feed me pizza.  I hope there’s a mugshot too.]
