A Baby Quilt
For me, the slightest twinge of inspiration turns into a weekend of OCD. Â I met a friend’s new baby on Friday and that was it, she must have a quilt by Monday. So the plans of Christmas wreath making went on hold, so the sweet little thing could be wrapped snug as a bug within 72 hours.
Baby Pink and White Chevron Pattern.
Â Luckily it was a baby I was inspired by and not a huge burly 6-foot-man because it’s a pretty small quilt. Â So i was able to finish it quickly.
The front is a subtle chevron, made using half square triangles. And the pack is a soft blue, solid piece of fabric with soft pink roses.
Some of the lines got a little wonky. I doubt the baby will care.
I hand stitched the the binding so I could keep working on it while watching the kids at their weekend program. Â My hands ached at the end and I need to buy a thimble.
First thing this morning I snapped a few pictures and the kids helped. I really hope the baby likes it, (in like 5 years when she can even process it). Â My secret wish is it becomes her “Gankey”…. that’s what my little ones still call their favorite blankets.
HandMade with Love
Oh, and look what came in the mail!!!!!!!! What a treat. So much new fabric!
Live on OCD, Live on.
