This is the second quilt I am entering in the Blogger's Quilt Festival. I made this quilt for one of my daughters, Emily. When I really got into quilting last year, she was the one always by my side asking for my scraps so I knew that she would be the first of my kids to get her own quilt. So this is the quilt for her twin size bed:
Last fall was the first time I heard about the blogger's quilt festival over at Amy's Creative Side. It is a great place for lots of yummy quilt inspiration and I have found quite a few quilty blogs to follow because of the blogger's quilt festival. So here's my first entry for the festival for the baby quilt category. I made this one over the summer for one of my sweet nephews who I will finally get to meet next month, yay!! This is my first quilt that I quilted on my own machine, just diagonal lines, and used my machine to sew on the binding instead of by hand since I thought it might be washed a bit more than a typical quilt. You can read more about it here and here.
I finished up these two baby blankets for a customer through my etsy shop. She has twin girls and wanted these to be a little bit bigger to use for the crib/toddler conversion beds. I still LOVE this marmalade line so they were fun to make. The back is a pink minky dot fabric. They will be so soft and snuggly for her girls:)
(I love my daughter's socks sticking out at the bottom!!)
My goal this month is to finish up a few baby blankets. I've got this marmalade patchwork up on my wall right now. I have a custom order to make two of these patchwork blankets for twin girls, so cute:) I'd also like to add another patchwork blanket to my shop. Three blankets this month, I better get sewing!
