To match his shoes

IMG_2562 

I’m on the verge of dorky since I made this blanket to match the baby shoes, but I had all this cute fabric lying around so I figured why not?   Plus I needed a quick patchwork project to tie me over while I’m SLOWLY working on bigger projects.  I’m not a sit around, take it easy kind of person…so being 39 weeks pregnant really cramps my style.

These squares are 6" cut.  I sewed 5 blocks per row, with 6 rows, so its a perfect baby size.  I sewed it together with the back pillowcase style and topstitched it, so it really was a quick sewing project.  Plus with those minky squares in there and a soft flannel back, its very snuggle worthy too.

Oh, my. Very few things make me wish I had boys to make cute things for. But this quilt certainly does. Ooooooh so much. Also makes me feel lame for not making much of anything for my girls. I have to say I'm in love with your blog. Good luck with baby #2!

I love those colors for a boy and all the soft textures (and all the Heather Ross). No batting in it, I'm assuming? Looks like a quick job. Hope you feel okay during the last week or so. Always the hardest part of pregnancy!

Stitchy said...

A lot of nice movement in there with the horizontal, vertical and diagonal. Fresh!
Jessica is right, the last week of a pregnancy is the hardest. It's so so exciting though.

PS the chair make over is fabulous! What a difference, huh?

Bessiemae said...

I'm sure this is a stupid question--what is 'pillowcase style'?

Darling quilt!
