I was working with crazy mismatched fabric. For Spikes baby shower I asked the guest to bring fabric in place of any baby gifts. So each piece I got I wanted to get into the quilt some how. It makes for a busy blanket, but I like that the fabric has so much meaning.
Monkeys, ladybugs, frogs, baby prints, footballs...there's a lot going on here.
I was so determined to finish this blanket today that I spent every spare moment working on it. Early in the morning I sewed the front of the binding on and the rest of the day was spent hand sewing the back of the binding to the back of the quilt, that's the part I really don't like. My hands are aching, the finger I used to push the needle through the fabric is so sore, I had to put a band aid on it toward the end just to keep going. I didn't put binding on the first few blankets I made, and it was so much easier, but it does look nicer with the binding.
So now that I am done with his blanket, I need to start on the newest bundles blanket so that maybe it will be done before she is a teenager. I am excited to use girly fabrics! I really am hoping to get it done before she is born, I think I learned my lesson about waiting. It seems easier and easier to put it off after they are born for some reason. I narrowed the choices on pattern down to three. Take a look below and tell me which one you like. Help me make up my mind, so I can start looking at fabric.
Exhibit A. Framed One Patch, not the fabric just the pattern. Really simple, and cute.
