The Good [Handmade] Stuff: Quilt for Baby
Here is another product of my recent sewing frenzy. Although I think I just unpacked 50 other baby blankets from Pete's infancy, I just had to make a special quilt for the little man on the way. And then, of course, I had to make a matching crib skirt and a blanket for his big brother (pics to come). I actually did some machine quilting this time, which was really fun, easier than the usual tying, and I definitely like the look of it better. In the past, I've made quilts without knowing what I was doing, but this time, I relied on my new book, Last Minute Quilted Gifts, which had some fantastic general quilting tips. Hope baby boy likes it!
