Pin It Hold the phone. Say what? Yes, you heard that right folks. Today I am posting a second quilt finish for the week. That is insane if you ask me..... but we're getting down to the wire, so I gotta get my sewing time in before the babymoon begins.
Here it is. Love! HideAway is the perfect choice in my mind for a gender neutral quilt. I was short just a couple charms, so I supplemented with 2 prints from my stash. All on Kona White of course. It's about 36" x 36".
I used the Wonky Star tutorial found in the Block Library. It was perfect for using a charm pack. Oh, and did I mention everything came from my stash? Boy, does that feel good.
Some DS Picnics and Fairground prints for the backing and binding. That little green gingham is so sweet.
I can't wait to use it! Both my other kids used the baby quilts I made them heavily.... tummy time, diaper blowouts, reflux and all. I expect this quilt will absolutely take a beating. But that's exactly why I made it this way. The wonky stars look eye catching, yet are a snap to whip up, so this quilt came together very quickly. I'd recommend it if you're looking for a quick gift.
I even (gasp) pre-washed and dried this one. Those quilty friends who have been to my house notice that the majority of my quilts have not been washed. I am secretly afraid something really bad will happen, so I avoid it if I can. But with a baby quilt, there's no denying it's gonna need washed. A lot.
Finished before the big day. Mama's happy. :) *sigh of relief*
