A friend of ours is having a baby this week. I had wanted to make them a quilt, then forgot about the due date.
Robot Husband so graciously informed me, I had 7 days to make a quilt.
I found a super cute pattern here, to make a car seat quilt.
How often do those cute little bundles of joy, kick their quilts or blankies off their car seats or strollers?
See the little ties?
Tie it on to the car seat handles or stroller and, voila!
I quilted this with free motion stippling on the outer border, then did circle loops in the white middle border.
I am by no means a mathematician. I was having heart palpitations the entire time in the middle, wondering if I was going to run into the other row, or over a row etc. Sigh....amazingly, I didn't and it turned out.
I don't ever really plan ahead my quilting. I just sort of go for it.
One of these days that is going to bite me. Hard.
Luckily for this baby, it didn't. :)
I had some highly cherished Sophie fabric in my stash, which I used for the middle. Oh, how I love that Sophie line.
Why do they have to stop making lines? I want it back! NOW!
I took this quilt with me to my local quilt shop, looking for matching fabric for the back, the border and the binding.
Apparently the quilt shop owners feel the same way about the Sophie line as I do. :)
