On December 6, 2016, I gave birth to my youngest daughter, Sophie. A few weeks later, my 2017 Quilter’s Planner arrived. I began sewing the weekly blocks, photographing them with my daughter, and posting the photos to Instagram as part of the #52WeeksWithTheQuiltersPlanner sew-along. At the time it just seemed like a cute thing to do. However, after the second or third week, I realised that this could be a THING. And so began #AYearOfBabyBlocks on my Instagram feed. And at the end of 2017 (she says hopefully) I’ll have a quilt and photographic memento of my baby girl’s first year.
