I am so excited to finally share with you my finished goal for February! I couldn't post until today because today was my sister's baby shower and I did not want her to see this ahead of time. I wanted it to be a surprise and I just loved how it turned out! I can't wait to photograph baby Chloe on it. Yes, my sister's baby decided to show up a little bit early, but thankfully everyone is doing great and hopefully Chloe will get out of the hospital soon!
So let's get to the pictures because I know that it is everyone's favorite part. At least it is mine. Here is the finished quilt top before quilting!
The quilt was a little bit harder to photograph then I had hoped because it was kind of big (36 x 48 inches), but that should make it a great play quilt for Chloe to play on. I decided to quilt wavy lines on it because I did not want to detract from the pattern and I wanted it to be soft for Chloe to lay on so dense quilting would not have worked either.
I picked a wavy lines coral print that I had used in the quilt top for the binding.
My sister's favorite fabric was the cloud print, so I used this for the back.
Here is my sister at the shower right after she opened her gift. I think she liked it!
Since I had leftover fabric, I also made her a couple of bibs using Camille Roskelley's Charming Bibs pattern. This is a really great pattern and it makes some nice larger bibs for when the kids get older. Here is Bib #1 modeled by my youngest.
She is just getting so big. I wish she would stop! Oh well, what can you do. Here is Bib #2.
