I keep thinking I’ll be able to get better at posting more regularly…but then, ya know…life happens.
My sister had her third little boy last week, so in true Allison fashion I waited until the last minute to make him a quilt. I used my Pow Wow pattern, which I hadn’t made in awhile, and this baby size goes together so fast!
I had a few cute rain cloud and umbrella prints I threw in since we’re from Seattle (it really doesn’t rain that much…maybe).
I backed this with a grey minky fabric. I wanted it to be very drapey (is that a word?) so I kept the quilting very minimal.
Too much quilting can make them a little stiff, especially with the thicker backing. I also used Warm and White batting so it will be cozy warm through the winter.
All wrapped up and ready for gifting! I really really love making baby quilts.
I can’t forget to thank my assistant…she’s the best help (ha!).
I remember putting my first baby in cute little jeans and cute little matching outfits each day. With the fourth baby it’s fuzzy footie pajamas all day every day. 😉 Fuzzy jammies for the win!
I forgot to mention random.org picked a winner from the last post with First Blush…Susan E. won and it’s already on it’s way! Thanks for the entering and have a great week!
