I finished the baby quilt this weekend. I still can’t catch my corners right when machine binding, so that was a bit frustrating. Still, this quilt is ADORABLE in every way. Don’t you think?
I found the perfect backing for this one in the form of a sheet. It was a fitted sheet, so I cut the corners and pulled out the elastic so I could have it nice and flat to cut and work with.
I had a solid deep pink fabric picked out for binding, but when the quilt was all quilted up and waiting for binding, the pink wasn’t right in the end. I had some of this green circle print on hand and I am so glad I used it instead.
The blocks are reminiscent of disappearing 9-patches, but they aren’t the actual thing. It was really easy and with chain piecing the whole way through, I was done making the top in 2 hours. Cutting not included- that always takes me a long time. I have been collecting these cute girly prints for a while, and I didn’t realize how many blues I had picked out until I started pulling fabric for this quilt! Blue is my favorite color, so I always have the most of that.
I have issues taking pictures. Some days I understand my camera, and other days… so we struggled with these. It was taking a while, so Mike (my awesome quilt-holding husband) got bored and started goofing around. Here he is showing me how he will be an old toothless man in a wheelchair with a quilt on his lap. He wouldn’t let me share the photo of him kissing his bicep. :)
But then he started flirting with me so I’ll forgive him.
I am soooo in love with this little quilt. My sister-in-law is preggers, but hasn’t found out the gender of the baby. If it pops out a girl, she will get this one. If it pops out a boy, I have another stack of fabric on the cutting table ready, and it will be really cute as well- just for boys!
We had a little too much fun taking pictures while my parents contained our children in the house. Hee hee! (By the way… there’s my new hair. I think I lost 8 inches of hair and 3 pounds with that haircut!!)
Quilt stats: 48” square, lots of different fabrics from various fabric lines and designers (I know there’s Sandi Henderson, Heather Bailey, Michael Miller, Anne Kelle… and others.)
