That title sounds far too serious. Liberty Courthouse is the quilt I made for a dear friend of mine who was so long overdue to receive a made-by-Meredith gift. Every year at Christmas I pick one person who will be the recipient of a big handmade thing. I mean, I normally give out smaller things […]

    I think it’s a beautiful work of art. I love how you used a lot of prints and love the colors and scrappiness – set off by your gorgeous hand quilting.ReplyCancel

Did anyone wonder what happened to me? I have spent every spare moment working on a commissioned queen size quilt for one of my most favorite clients! She had a vision of a bold, Anthro-esque quilt. We went back and forth on the fabrics and decided on our palette. She has excellent taste! The quilt […]

You are the month that really got away from me. At least, mentally. December began with what was probably my most major commission of the whole year. It was a rush job that had to be in the hands of the intended recipient by the 13th of the month. This gorgeous quilt was commissioned by […]

    Hi Meredith! I just found your blog while looking for some inspiration for an Anna Maria Horner sleep sack I’m planning for my little one. Your work is gorgeous! Can’t see what you make for 2016. Many blessings for the New Year!ReplyCancel

So many things happen in preparation for a new baby! And I swear each consecutive child has required more, not less, despite popular belief. We live in a two bedroom house and are about to be a family of five. Wallace is still in our room (I hate admitting that) because until just a few […]

  • It’s so cute! The kids look thrilled. I’ll bet Wallace is excited about his side ; )ReplyCancel

  • It is looking so beautiful! We are in the same position as you, 2 bedroom, two boys share a room and baby girl lives with us. It is tight and not ideal, but what can you do? Make the best of what it is! ReplyCancel

    I just wanted to share that our 2 kiddos (6 year old girl and 2 1/2 year old boy) have shared a room since our son was 9 months old. Amazingly they never wake each other up – not from crying, or even full bed strips in the middle of the night thanks to a terrible belly bug. We had finally saved up enough for a tiny addition to add another bedroom, but decided to use it to by some adjacent land instead when we realized our kids would be devastated to be separated at this point. We know the day will come, especially with the age and gender difference. But for now, they love it. Congrats on the toy purge, we do this often as well as we have chosen to live in a tiny house with the people we love, not mountains of toys.ReplyCancel

  • My three older kids share a room since the baby boycotted when we added an extra person to his space. We’re a family of 6 in a three bedroom and so far it’s worked out great. I love that you chose to not go for gender neutral, I may do something similar that reflects the personalities of each child. I have one daughter who is really mellow and one who is not so much. :) Both boys are pretty chill, but you’ve given me some thoughts to add to their room.ReplyCancel

Several weeks ago when I was working on my Market contributions, Alison Glass asked me if I would like to be a part of her Knit Stitch Along. She has just come out with a range of gorgeous knits (like the best quality I’ve seen on the market). Anyway, she wanted me to make a […]

    I love this! Thanks for sharing- I am putting it at the top of my “to make” list. You are a brave girl hiding Liberty- but it totally shines through in the end!ReplyCancel

  • Beautifully done. I love this! I actually *am* a total AC fan (although I am waiting until I (finally!) get down to the size I’d like to be before I make something that takes that many hours…) but I would never have thought to hide patchwork between layers of knit (and Liberty at that?!) Although it would take longer to sew – this would be an excellent use of improv – pieced scraps…. hmmm
    (how did you baste your layers?)ReplyCancel

  • Your blanket is so pretty! I had caught a look over on IG when you were making the patchwork and never would’ve thought this was the plan. I’m really temped to try this out, did you have it in a hoop to stitch up and how did you transfer the images on to the knit?ReplyCancel
