What We're Making - Maggie Edition
As you might imagine, we all have multiple projects happening simultaneously. Maggie brought in a bag of her projects which are completely different from Sophie's!
Pattern: Chevron Quilt
Material: Robert Kaufman's Organic Cotton Robot Factory <PREVIEWEND>
Why? My best friend in the world is pregnant with a boy and my dear son decided that she should name her baby Robot. So I am making a baby quilt out of this organic robot fabric for the little one in honor of the nickname he got before he even showed up!
Pattern: Crochet Orla Tote by Alisa Braithwaite
Why? I learned how to crochet only recently and have been wanting a project to work on so I could improve my skills. When I saw Alisa wearing the Orla tote she made herself I knew it was the right project for me. Turns out I'm really not the best at crocheting but this was such a great project to take me to the next level in my crocheting skills!
Pattern: Gather Here Sampler Quilt Blocks
Material: Various cottons
Why? Before I started working at Gather Here almost everything I knew about sewing was self-taught. My mom and I sewed together when I was younger but by the time I really became interested in it she and I were already living in different states. This is one of the reasons I consider Virginia such a blessing in my life. When she opened the store she brought a wealth of knowledge into my life. She's so open to answering questions that whenever there's something I don't know how to do, or something I find confusing, I can always ask her. And honestly, I feel like just listening to her talk to other people or eavesdropping while she teaches a class has taught me more than I could ever ask for.
