Here is a cute quilt that I made for my best friend. We are both preggo and its so much fun being preggo at the same time. She is having a little boy and is due a month after me.
I love the way this quilt turned out. She is doing her baby room white, gray and black so I went through my stash and pulled out my grays. I have been collecting grays for a while now. I want to make a grey and some other color quilt. But since I have not decided what I am doing yet I used my prized grays in her quilt.
I used a Cluck Cluck Sew pattern called Ziggy Baby. I did the child size so that it will last him a little longer. It turned out pretty good sized.
I did the quilting on it myself. I used gray and black thread. I did straight quilting. On one side of the seam I did black and the other side I did grey. I love the way it looks when they intersect. When I went to quilt it I realized that I was out of black and grey thread. How did that happen?!?!?! So I went and bought 2 big spools of Guterman. Maybe since I bought the big ones I won’t run out again and not realize it. LOL.
Sheena loved the quilt which made me so happy. Sometimes making quilts for other people can be so nerve racking. Its hard to gage exactly what someone else will love. But she loved it so much that I am thinking of making her daughter a purple quilt for her birthday. Its not until February so I have a little while to put it off. LOL.
