A baby quilt

I bought a stack of six fat quarters at the quilt show this year because just looking at them reminded me of my cousin who, lucky for me, is having a baby girl soon. Of course I had to make a crazy quilt! In case you are wondering I was worried it was a little bit loud for a baby, but rest assured my cousin loved it!

The two fabrics that really drew me in were the glasses and purses you can see above. The sashing is a hot pink cross hatch print that I picked up in another booth, but it matched perfectly.

Check out the back fabric!!!How cute is that? I love the back as much as the front.

You can kind of see here I made a 5 inch diagonal grid to follow to quilt it. It looked pretty good I think. The binding I machine sewed since I figured it may get quite a lot of washings. The binding was a trip to Joann, but I was amazed with the softness of the fabric. It was unexpected coming from there.

I had some scraps left and couldn't resist making a few burp cloths.

This one is my favorite. I used some vintage lace from an estate sale on all of these.They turned out so cute.

The grey and pink was pieced together in stripes with ruffles made of lace and the bird one next to it just has lace down each side of the featured fabric. I had to fussy cut the good birds. Some days you just have to fussy cut the birds, you know?
