Despite not posting for the last . . . oh, 3 months, I have been actually been doing stuff. There’s been sewing and traveling and quilting and preserving and puzzling and dancing and probably more. Which is why there haven’t been posts. But trying to catch up on stuff now. Someday I’ll get this whole blogging thing under control. Maybe.

This one is a baby quilt for a friend who had a baby in August. It took me a little bit to get her the quilt (I originally intended it for her shower in June) but I had to get longarm time (and life time) to finish it.

Baby quilt pieces

I found this jelly roll of super cute flannel with little woodland creatures on it. I pieced sets of three strips together and then cut them into squares.

Then I laid out the squares in a grid, alternating direction.

For the quilting, I did some freestyle swirls following the pattern of the blocks. I love how the design really shows through on the flannel.

For the back I used minky because it’s so soft and cuddly for the babies.

They had yardage of the flannel as well so I picked up some of the striped one to use as the binding. Sewing flannel was a bit challenging — it liked to slide and the binding was no different — but it turned out okay in the end.

Baby boy burp cloths

I ended up with some odds and end pieces that I put together to make a couple of burp cloths backed with minky.

It was nice to be able to include a little something extra that coordinated. From what I see on Facebook, the little guy is getting plenty of use out of his blanket 🙂
