On to quilts! My friends J and S just had a baby on Friday. They did not know if this baby was going to be a boy or girl. I picked a quilt pattern, and bought fabric so that whichever way it went, I would be prepared to finish the quilt.
It was a boy! So I went with these two fabrics. The green is a little off in this lighting. It looks more accurate in the overall picture.
These friends already had a daughter when I met them three years ago, which meant I never made a baby quilt for their first child. She is now 5 years old, so I decided to make her a big sister quilt. The way I see it, she has been the only child for 5 years so she might have some minor adjustment issues, but she is a total trooper. I think this deserves a quilt.
Her favorite colors are pink and purple, but I wanted to include some other colors just in case her favorite colors change. The really dark looking ones are actually not-too-dark purple batiks. This one is 56" x 64". I also have no idea how to quilt this one, but I will figure it out. Also, the pattern for this quilt is from Moda Bakeshop and is called the Apple Crate Pattern.
Hopefully I will finish grading and submit grades soon so that I can start sewing a little bit more. Uggh, wishful thinking! ;)
