One of my very best friends in the whole wide world just became a mommy. Yeah, that kid is in for a wild ride. So I thought I’d help him out with a little something soft to wrap up in.
They’re decorating his nursery in grey and white chevrons, with bits of yellow and polka dots. I pulled all these out of my stash, and I was a bit worried at first about the floral prints, but I think they’re totally ok for a baby boy. Or any boy for that matter… who says boys can’t like flowers?
I love getting to use some of my more kid-friendly prints like the scooter kids from Little Apples or those crazy awesome Monsterz from Cloud 9.
I couldn’t resist a bit of pink on the back for mommy… because it wouldn’t be Lizzie’s without a little hot pink in there.
Finish it up with some of my favorite fabric for binding, the tuxedo stripe from Riley Blake, and it was good to go.
I got to deliver it in person when I went to Utah for Sewing Summit. I was really hoping to meet the baby that weekend, but as so many babies do, he decided the due date was more of a guideline really, and came a week after I left. But he is beautiful and will make a great football player one day.
It’s been a while since I entered a quilt in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, so this was the perfect time to get my act together and share something I’ve made recently. Go check out all the amazing creations from quilters all over the world.
Also, there’s only three weeks left for me to meet my fundraising goal for Multiple Myeloma Research! Go here to read about my mom’s story and why this cause is so important to me. (you could win a handmade quilt if you’re inclined to make a donation!)
