Well, not sure how, but I actually was able to make my baby daughter a quilt after she was born. Believe me, it's not easy to find time for my hobby at all. If it wasn't for my wonderful husband, I'd never get any time at all for my hobby. He's there to watch the kids and make sure I chill the heck out and go do something I love. At times he commands me to go do this. I got this pattern from Singer's book: The Quilting Bible. It was a fun pattern and I may even do it again some day. It got really tedious cutting out all the hearts and prepping them to be sewn on. But in the end it was worth it as the quilt turned out gorgeous. I find quilting to be a great break from garment sewing when I need it. Quilting is pretty straightforward and I don't have to worry about alterations, sewing collars, etc.
