My niece and her wife will welcome a new baby boy in May. Last night I found the perfect pattern for a masculine baby quilt. Today, I couldn't wait to get started!
Wait....What? Masculine and baby?
|Modern, masculine baby (32" x 44")|
Dark brown, light blue, dark teal, with blue & teal polka dots on brown.
Here's the pattern I used:
|From the current issue of "Best Modern Quilts" magazine|
I shopped in my stash, so am staying true to my "fabricholics" pledge to use what I have. If I can scrounge a backing out of the cupboard, this could go straight to the head of the line and be the next quilt on the frame!
Yesterday was a busy day. I quilted two UFO's and started binding them. I finished binding them this morning.
Here they are,
Fresh off the frame:
|Charity quilt in progress.|
|Charity quilt, finished.|
|Flannel baby quilt in progress.|
|Flannel baby quilt, finished.|
Thankfully, the two layers of flannel are perfect without any batting. Soft and cozy!
Both quilts were bound entirely by machine for a fast, durable finish.
Off to scrounge in my cupboard, and try to stay on track! (Wish me luck with...oh, look! A squirrel!)
Try, Learn, Grow!
I welcome your comments. Thanks for stopping by!
