So, one of the moms in my MOPS group is having her second baby any minute now and we had her shower this morning. I decided kind of last minute to make her a quilt.
The nursery is a yellow/gray theme and I started with the swirl fabric that has yellow, gray, and pink. Once I saw the pink added I knew it would be perfect and worked on finding all the colors to work together.
This is the first quilt I’ve finished that has a border so I completely spaced that I didn’t need to quilt on the border fabric. Oh well, it looks cute. I also got a new walking foot for my machine and it works wonders. I love machine quilting now- I have three quilts that I can’t wait to put together. To save time I also machine sewed the binding down, normally I would hand stitch it but I didn’t want to give her a blanket and take it right back.
Here is a close-up of the back.
I have a busy couple of weeks with family coming in town and then all the fun of the holiday season, so maybe I’ll be able to squeeze in some sewing/crafting/DIY time here and there.
