I got another baby quilt done. This one is for my friend’s baby boy. Amazingly he is only 5 months old. I got it done with a year to spare. 🙂I was trying to put all the blocks together when Buster decided I needed some help…or a nap. And the best place for a nap is in the most inconvenient place.
I got the monster fabric from a shop in Napa a year and a half ago. It was too cute to pass up. The rest of the fabric is from my stash…Good job Emily. I didn’t have to buy any new fabric for this one.
Close up on the blocks. I bought the pattern at Runs with Scissors and adapted it to work with the fabrics I already had. My quilt looks nothing like the one on the pattern. With the quilting, I used the new brand of thread that I found, King Tut Thread. It works beautifully with no breakage. I am in love with it and want all the colors.
Because I can’t just sew a strip down the side when the backing is just a little too small…I have to get all creative and spend more than an hour on the back of a quilt for a baby… WHY do I do this to myself?
