This week is going to be full of things that I have made for baby (whom I am patiently waiting on arriving). I found out at last weeks appointment I have already started to dilate, so it's nice to know I'm at the end and will get to meet her soon. I keep telling her to stay in at least until after Sunday so I can have my oldest daughter's birthday party. You see, their due dates are only 1 day apart, so they could even end up with the same birthday potentially. Wouldn't that be wild!
The first thing I'm showing off is this baby quilt I made. It was super simple and I love how it came out. I used this tutorial from Oh, Fransson called Charm Squares Baby Quilt. I bought my charm squares off of Etsy. They are from Heather Bailey's line, Nicey Jane. I also made this one without any batting since we live in hot Florida.
It took me forever to decide on fabric for the nursery. The room we are using for the baby room is this light blue (with an ugly darker sponged on blue over it; but thank goodness it doesn't really show up in the pictures!). So I wanted it to match the blue walls. I had a hard time finding already made crib bedding with blue that was girly, so I had to make it.
I made the crib stuff too, but I'll show all of that later.
This time I did the hand sewing on the binding, unlike last time on my daughter's quilt. It turned out beautiful and I am so proud of myself :) It pays off to take your time on a project sometimes instead of rushing it.
I found a few other cute baby quilt tutorials that would be fantastic to try too:
Anyone else been making a baby quilt lately?
