Happiness is a finished project

Last year, I designed the Flutter and Bloom crochet quilt for a Crafty Living column. I also had a personal reason: I needed a baby gift.

I held off on publishing the design hoping to have the full blanket finished, but come August of last year, I needed a column and there the design sat.

Baby Juliette, who has graced our pages numerous times modeling Lara Neel's creations, is going to be a year old this month. And, I'm proud to say, I finished the blanket with a few weeks to spare before her birthday.

Check out a picture of the finished piece in our Photo Friday feature tomorrow.
