How to make a baby quilt!

Step 1: Try to crochet.
Step 2: Cry a lot while teaching yourself from a book.
Step 3: Punch the wall.
Step 4: Get the hang of crocheting.
Step 5: Fall asleep on yarn pile.
Step 6: Put squares together and realize you've spent three weeks on a "quilt" that's more the size of a poncho. It's a quoncho.
Step 7: Cry some more.
Step 8: Add fringe.
Step 9: Wait until you're mostly done. Then take pictures.

Lots of pictures.

If there's one thing you've learned from Etsy, it's that a quoncho is only as good as the surface upon which it is draped.

Drape that quoncho.

Keep draping, it'll look good sooner or later.









  1. What have you done to my dog?!?! Limp Bruiser, limp away!
    It actually looks really good juju! Next step, learn how to knit!

  2. Impressive! It looks very good. I haven't ventured into quoncho territory. Only earflap hats. Equally frustrating when you're too poor to buy a $4.00 pattern to make your life easier.

  3. wow it looks great!! I can only crochet straight lines, or beanies- that's the end of my abilities with yarn. Good job!! I like the picture on the treadmill the best- it looks good in the sunlight:)oh and on the mailbox:)

  4. I don't know who you guys are but this has got to be the funniest blog I have read in a very long time. Before you get totally creeped out (too late) and turn your blog private I was blog hopping from Brad and Connie Ray's perhaps you guys know them... I am not sure they would vouch for us/me but at least you know I am not too random of a person. I went to BYU...not sure that really helps too much actually. The best post was the post about you guys making fun of your little sister...or someone's little sister. I laughed out myself....Anyway, I am probably going to regret writing this comment in the morning but its past midnight where I live and right now it seems like a good idea.

    1. I don't know this blog person or Brad & Connie Ray. I did go to BYU, too, though. Thank you random commenter. You made my day.

  5. Exciting!! You are not a creep! At least not the kind of creep that I mind having around.
