Wishing I was on vacation, in the meantime I am crafting up a storm & journaling to keep track of it all. This is where I share my love of travel, quilting, coss stitch, crochet, cooking and gardening.
My Best friend Alicia had her precious baby boy in June. I made her a baby quilt. Her nursery wall has a large mural of a tree with an owl in it. I kind of took that as an owl and bird theme for the quilt.
I used part of a Bright Owl fabric panel by Alice Kennedy. I used some fabric from the same line for the border and used some cotton king size pillow cases in orange and blue for the outside border and the binding. I love how this turned out.
For the backing fabric I used a bird print by Emma with Northcott fabrics.
On the back I put a little personalized heart label with Noah’s name and birth date.
For the quilting I just did some lines up and down thru the center and then went around the outside borders.
I was lucky enough to be able to visit with my BFF Alicia while in Oregon at the beginning of July. Noah is so adorable. Mom and baby are doing great. I think baby quilts and blankets are so great to just toss on the ground and plop baby down for floor play. Since the babies are not moving around much at this age it makes for nice photos to change out what they are lying on. I have another girlfriend whom just had her baby girl on the 17th, so I need to get back in gear and sew up another baby quilt.
