So Cute I Wanted to Keep It

One of my favorite things is making handmade gifts for friends, but this project was so cute that I wanted to keep it. Once again drawing on inspiration from Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts, I created a two-sided quilt for the director of my daughter's school (who is fantastically deserving of a labor of love such as this).

I fell in love with the blue and mocha fabrics that comprised the sides but I wanted to keep it from looking too boyish since the gender was unknown. Laurel picked the orange for the binding, and I hand quilted by tracing flower and leaf elements using orange thread.
