About a month ago, a friend of my mom’s asked if I’d be interested in making a baby quilt for her soon-to-be-born granddaughter. I jumped at the chance, and I was very excited when we decided on using the Nicey Jane line of fabrics.
We chose a fairly simple design to really highlight the colors and prints from this line. I continued the design through the back of the quilt by adding a strip of squares with sashing. I also made a string of bunting flags to go along with the quilt– although I haven’t found an easy way to photograph those yet. I’ll share a pic as soon as I have one!
In other news, I *finally* worked up the courage to start on some of the curved piecing for my single girl quilt this weekend, and I have my first square done! I’m making a queen sized quilt for our bed, so my official count is: 1 square down, 15 to go. I think this might take me a while, but I think I’ll try to pin a few curves every evening to make it more manageable. It’s a little gray and dreary here, so I haven’t been able to get a picture yet, but I’m hoping to share one soon!
And, finally, here’s my favorite Simon photo from this week: He’s so cuddly and loves to be near us, and one morning he curled up right behind J. He’s so silly!
