Project: Baby Quilt

September 11, 2008

A dear dear friend is having a baby in early October and I’m sewing a baby quilt for her!  I’ve only made one quilt before, so its been an adventure, but a fun one.  I’m so much more disciplined than I was last time I quilted, which has sort of made me feel like a grown up.

I bought these fabrics at Purl Patchwork where they were so nice and so helpful.  Also, the prices are pretty fair, especially when you factor in shipping costs. In addition to the fabrics above, I’m quilting in old dress shirts from her father and husband as a way to fit an extra bit of love into the quilt.   The photo below is the quilt that I’m basing my design on.   I’ll post it when I’m done, of course!

Oh and this Alexander Henry fabric, “Zoo” is what I’m using on the back.
