It has always been more fun to sew stuff, knowing that someone close would enjoy them. My dear friend Katerina wanted an organic cotton bumper for her little girl. She chose to use the Birch Fabrics line MARINE which are simply adoring for a newborn baby crib.
Beautiful organic cotton prints are hard to find, and Birch Fabrics is providing a super cute series.
It was the first time I tried sewing a bumper, and while sewing I promised that I will never do it again. It was pretty difficult managing the length of the fabric. The best part is that I had a very good guide from the book: “Simple Sewing for Baby: 24 Easy Projects for Newborns to Toddlers”. It includes very good guidance on how to sew a crib bumper.

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!
Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
