Baby quilts

In October I will be an Aunt for the first time!!

We're all excited!
I had so much fun making my little Nephew a blanket. I can finally blog about it now too, since I gave my sister the quilt last week at her baby shower!

I thought the zig-zag/chevron pattern was a change from traditional quilts. It's seems harder and harder to find new and creative ideas!

The top is flannel, and the back is Minky! It's such a cuddly, soft quilt, I could have almost kept it myself.

Another friend is also due to have her first little boy in October. So while I was in Idaho at my sister's shower, I also gave her a blanket!

I like how the quilting turned out on this one. It gave it a nice "crinkly" look.

It's so much more fun making quilts with a specific person in mind. I feel like you can put more of yourself in the gift since I tend to think of them as I am sewing!

Glad to have the opportunity to give these little guys a comfy quilt.

This second one is all Flannel with hi-loft polyester batting so it's feels puffy and soft!
