A couple of months ago I started a baby quilt from my Bend the Rules Sewing Book. It’s actually an “easy lap quilt” but it’ll work for a baby just fine.
My friend is going to have a farm theme in her son’s room, and her husband is a cowboy- so I found the perfect material. I wanted a look that was fun but not too kidish. Since they have a small house this will work in the living room as a regular blanket!
Here is the finished product:
This was my first time to “stitch in the ditch” as well as do any kind of real quilting. The first time I made a quilt I tied it, so I’ve never done machine quilting. This is probably the biggest size my machine could handle and I had a lot of fun making it.
Here is a close up. Aren’t the cowboys perfect?
I also love the lasso fabric I found. It made the perfect background.
I got fabric to make matching bibs and will be getting those done in the next month (baby’s coming in January!). I’ll post those when I get them finished.
