So honored that it was held here in my home! So very much fun!!
So, of course, he had to come out of Anthony's storage tub in the basement to a place of honor on the table.
Her colors for the new nursery are grey, blues, black and white. She made this pretty quilt for the baby herself!! :-)
This is my real official quilt for my first grandson, who is due October 2nd!!
I stayed with their colors as much as I could (wink) but did add a few tiny splashes of green!!
The colors and design reminded me of water sliding over rocks in a stream with tiny bits of moss here and there...
so I named it "Babbling"...which will also describe the baby a few months down the road!!
I also did some real modern free motion quilting on it!! Really loved doing that, too!!
Then, I bought some cute charm packs of children's collections and made small utility quilts that can be used for car seats and carriage and such.
A charm pack has 42 five inch squares and with a 6 by 7 layout, you get a little quilt that is about 27" by 32"!
Then about 30-45 minutes to layer and quilt it.
Then about an hour or so to attach and sew down the binding.
So, they are fun and quick and easy to make. It does take a bit more time should you decide to add a bit of applique'!!
I really loved making them all!! A few of them are all flannel. Some are all regular cotton fabric, and some are regular cotton fabric on the front and have flannel on the back.
We had lots of great food, games, prizes and fun! And Leah got awesome baby gifts...which Yogi stole two of from the open bags and boxes on the floor, after everyone had gone home!!
He confiscated a rubber ducky and a little blue stuffed elephant!! We all just had to laugh!!
