I had a baby shower to go to last weekend and decided that I wanted to try something new. Something that I had “pinned” while I was searching for quilt patterns. I followed this tutorial from this lovely blog called SewSara. I did everything according to the instructions except altering the numbers of squares I needed of each color to create the pattern of the quilt. I also added a layer of polar fleece in the middle to add some warmth. Once it was washed the blanket was so cozy and I was so tempted to keep it for myself, well my baby girl. I have to say this was a pretty easy sewing project. The blanket took me about four evenings after my girls were in bed. Two of those nights were just snipping until my hands had enough! I think that it is an easy go to baby gift and perfect for some of those bigger scraps you may have in your fabric stash! (Sorry I forgot to take a picture of the back, it was checker board white minky with the circle bumps and smooth baby pink minky)
Oh and I also bought some new flowers and made my girls a bunch of new clips! Elena finally has enough hair to be clipped! It only took her a year and a bit.
