Today I wanted to share some pictures of the quilt I made for baby boy Smith (due March 18th). I started and finished it in a week, which is record time for me. I've been surprised at how much I've actually been enjoying sewing recently (I have other sewing projects going on). Usually, I don't really enjoy sewing or find it to be relaxing, but I've certainly been enjoying myself. And it seems like I only really sew when I'm pregnant. Hmmm...
I love looking on Etsy for fabric. I like it because I can find patterns I cannot find locally. I found a shop on Etsy that had all of the fabric I wanted right there. I was able to put it all in my online cart and make sure the colors matched. I was very pleased when I received the fabric in the mail. And I couldn't wait to get started!
This is the quilt folded once over the crib railing. I just did ties for the quilt...which is simple and easy...just takes a little bit of time.
The back side is minky fabric. Super soft!
A little teddy bear from Grandma Smith!
Quent helped me decide what color the binding should be. Orange is always a favorite color in our house, so we went with that. I love how it turned out! The color just pops!
I just LOVE this quilt! And I can't wait to keep my baby warm with it!
