 I've been busy this past week quilting. Been on my to-do list for awhile. Finally got to it, and thoroughly enjoyed it!

About a month ago I went to a quilt show. I bought a "quilt kit" had the pattern and per-measured fabric. I'd been keeping my eye out for girly fabric since I heard my friend would be having a baby girl in November! I enjoyed making this baby blanket for my friends baby girl arriving soon!

I absolutely love these prints and pattern. I told my husband I like it soo much I don't want to give it away. But since I don't have a use for a baby girl blanket, I guess I will ;)

I used a soft, flannel-like material for the backing I've often heard it referred to as "minky". I love how cuddly it makes this blanket! Makes it a little warmer too, as the baby will be born late fall!
I also used satin blanket binding! I like that this quilt is soo girly!!
This is probably one of my favorite quilt patterns so far!!

Last night I cut out a rag quilt! Been wanting to try one of these for a long time. Finally got around to it. 
The concept is great, and it's a really quick project since you don't have to cut out a backing and quilt.
I used flannel sandwiched between the cotton fabric. It frays nicely and the cotton sticks to it so it doesn't require quilting! It also makes a reversible quilt!

This is just a small lap quilt. I haven't decided what to do with this one yet. I may save it and give it away later. 

I really like how it turned out, and how easy and simple it is. I think the next time I make one I will use all flannel!

  1. Wow! The girly pink quit is gorgeous! I love the pattern. (And of course the purple one is pretty too, but I already expressed my opinion on Facebook). : )
