more…Baby Quilts!

Little sheep strip quilt
This week was a blur. I couldn’t even tell you when I finished these, but somehow I must have found time because here they are. My weeks are sure flying by, I can’t believe we are a week away from April. Tomorrow my baby will be 2. Everybody told me it would go fast, but until you’re here you don’t realize just how fast. It sure is fun being his momma, even if he is (extremely!) cranky this morning.

Urban Cowboy Baby Quilt
This is the third (or fourth?) quilt I’ve made with this same pattern. I love the simple look of it, it lets the fabric really stand out. But…I think I’ve learned my lesson with Minky. I’m officially SICK of it. I used it on the back of the top strip quilt as well as this one. It turned out fine on both, but I think using it for the borders and back on this one made it extra tricky. Lesson learned, I’m sticking with cotton backs for awhile at least.

Last but not least…Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for all your sweet comments! You guys really made my week when my sweet (almost) 2 year old was really testing my patience. So Thank you. I love looking at all your blogs and seeing what you’ve been up to as well! I’ve had a couple questions that I haven’t been able to reply to, so if you have a question you want answered, please use my email address so that I can reach you. (top of right hand column)

My husband has a four day weekend, so I think I will give the Bernina a break for a few days and check in with you guys next week! Happy sewing and have a great weekend!

    Oh, I love all the color combos!

    I made a quilt with a minky back for which I quilted the front and the batting to very thin muslin and then attached the minky with the binding. I found much more pleasant than trying to quilt minky!

    I love your fabric choices and your color combinations. I’m in the middle of my first quilt and I think I may be a little addicted. So glad I found your blog. Thanks for the great inspiration!

    I am not sure where I found your blog. Maybe Sew Mama Sew but I just LOVE your quilts. I haven’t made a quilt in a really long time and yours really are inspiring, modern, fresh and exciting. My baby turns two this May and I have one due in May too. I hope I can find the time to make a quilt as beautiful as yours are.

    I really enjoy your blog – love the colour choices for your quilts, so fresh and crisp. As for minky – I love using it as backing, but it can limit your machine quilting because of its stretchiness. Not to mention the fluff that magically appears around the house. ;-)
    I used cotton backing for the last quilt I did and it was refreshing not to “work” the quilt as much!
    Have a great break with your family,

    I love the sheepy fabric in that first one! Keep ’em coming. I’m way impressed that you seem to get so much done, as I am the mother of a three-almost-four-year-old boy and barely getting by, haha….:)
