Enter baby Oscar, who was born a month ago. I was thinking of what I should do for his quilt, when his mom posted a picture of his nursery on her blog and I thought to myself "Self! You need to use those shirts!"
So I cut them up, along with some old khakis, seersucker pants, and an old dress of Gracie's. I wasn't really sure how it was going to look, but once I had it put together I was in love! I know, it's a little weird to be gifting a quilt made of our old clothes... but it is my husband's super close friend, and they are pretty openminded, so I think it's ok :)
Thanks to mom, again, for advice on the borders. I really stink at borders!
And I used quilting flannel for the first time for the backing. I really love how it felt - I'll be doing that from now on for the baby quilts I do.
Luckily, I have a little break from baby quilts. The next baby is in March, and they aren't finding out the sex, so I have time!
I have been working on Gracie's quilt. Yah, I finally decided it was time to get this out of the WIP pile. I am done with the basting and finished up the quilting today! Just have to put the binding on that baby and I'll be done! Gracie is so excited!
And I have my next quilt already cut out! It's one for our house, so I'm super excited!!
