This is the first quilt that I have ever made that is not going to be given as a gift. That is actually going to stay at my house. Can you guess where?
Actually it is quite a miracle I was able to finish it without a deadline such as a shower etc. But the whole “finishing the nursery before he makes his appearance” deadline helped me complete it. Not that the nursery is totally done or anything. Almost.
I did a very simple back with a soft brown flannel. There is just something about flannel on the back on baby quilts.
I did a simple wave on the quilting which made it all crinkly and cuddly. I incorporated some of the sheet fabric in the piece in the back as well as the binding to tie the bedding set together.
I love how it looks on his crib and makes me all the more ready for his arrival. Just have to complete the nursery first.
(Disclaimer: I know the quilt, stuffed animal and pillow should not be in the crib when he is in there….but for right now it makes me smile and I like how it looks. Once he is actually sleeping in the crib (which will hopefully be quickly since he is going to be such an awesome sleeper…wink wink), the crib will be safely empty.)
