Anyway, pregnancy is always a good excuse for me to make a baby quilt, so that's just what I did. I used a pattern from my Quilts, Baby book and fabrics from Jay McCarroll's Garden Friends and Woodland Wonderland collections. For the embroidery, I mimicked some of the designs from the fabric.
I actually think I did kind of a terrible job on the quilting part, which is such a shame. I think I got overly-confident and rushed through. I also think I chose a batting too plush for what I'm capable of working with. Regardless, it's said and done, and here's the final product:
In addition to the quilt, I thought I'd give burp clothes a try. So, using some extra fabric from the quilt, some towels we were looking to recycle, and this tutorial, that's just what I did.
