Sometimes life gets so busy I forget how much I miss sewing when I'm away from it. Well, I was lucky enough to break away from my hectic schedule to make two baby quilts; in one week at that! I loved every minute of it. The pattern I decided to go with was super quick and easy, can't go wrong with a good old fashioned Rail Fence quilt pattern.
My first quilt made was for a sweet little girl that was born the day after Christmas. Her parents were keeping the sex of the baby a secret, so they chose gender neutral colors of teal and gold for her room. That was perfect, because we have two color ways in Minimalista by Art Gallery Fabrics - you guessed it, gold and teal!
I love how it turned out, simple, classic, yet playful!
I'm happy to report the quilt has made it to it's new home and is well loved.
Next on my list, which has been on my list for sometime... was a quilt for baby Lily. Lilly is already seven months old... where does the time go?? To keep things going at a fast pace and since the Rail Fence was so fun to do, I made another one just like Kirby's. Lily's room is gorgeous shades of pink and aqua. If you know me, you know I love Bonnie and Camille fabric. Scrumptious was the perfect line to use, aqua, pink and green. LOVE. IT.
I selected a simple but elegant quilting design called meandering feathers, which I'm sure you'll be seeing more of.
I thought this was the perfect fabric for binding. I love stripes, and even better they are already printed diagonal so I don't have to cut it on the bias!
Sewing binding by hand is for the birds, or at least that's what this someone thinks that doesn't like doing hand work. Any binding done by hand on my quilts will most likely be done by my mom (thanks mom).
May your days be filled with sewing!
