The reason that I started to learn to quilt was because all my friends started to have babies and I wanted to make cute things for them. This makes baby quilt #6 (with a couple more in progress of course since I can never finish something 100% without starting something new).
And I still love making them…..
This took just a charm pack of fun fabric and a solid color for the background. It pieced together very quickly and I love the windowpane look.
And the back in a cream soft flannel with a pinwheel….
I think I am in love with that curvy stitch on my sewing machine…..
I also made a light weight blanket with a fun boy animal print.
This was super easy. I just got a yard of fabric I loved and sliced it, turned different sections around, and inserted white.
More snuggly flannel on the back. This was the first time I attempted a machine sewn binding. I have to say it was so much faster than a traditional hand sewn binding (like on the quilt) and I was so happy how the front looks. But it was a little wonkier on the back than I would have liked. Oh well I guess that just means more practice. Hopefully Baby K won’t mind.
We had a great time at the shower and Sarah, the mom-to-be, looked so cute. Sarah is actually the friend that convinced to start a blog and that people would actually read it (besides her and my mom).
So now you know where to direct your hate mail/fan mail to.
Hope Baby K loves his new quilt!
