Throw Back Thursday

Eight and a half years ago, I made a baby quilt for my niece using good night phrases in many languages sent to me by friends in real life and from my blog life.

Violet's Quilt

That niece obviously isn’t a baby anymore, and her room has grown and changed with her. Recently, she updated her room to a fun blue scheme, but found a way to continue to incorporate her special quilt.

We think the world languages on the quilt coordinate quite well with her world map. I also note a lovely use of purple as a subtle accent throughout the room (and her personal style). I like it! And I’m looking forward to being able to see Violet’s new room in person soon.

As I dug up the photo of this quilt I noticed two things: the quilt (and the rejected first try in the linked blog post) is kinda “Modern” from before “Modern” was such a big thing; and Wow, this is my tenth year blogging!
