If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I have a niece on the way. And with that news I have been crafting everything baby related. I am a huge procrastinator and it shows in my work. Every time I say I’m not going to procrastinate again and yet here we are… rushing through things to get it done by deadline. Anyways, I made this quilt for her out of one jelly roll from Joanne’s and some yardage for the backing. I think one yard worked for the back but I bought all my fabric before I had a size in mind and got two yards. More things can be made from it.
I ironed all my strips and placed them in a pattern I liked on my pattern wall. I sewed them all together, ironed it down, and then placed the front, middle, and back together to be pinned together.
I ‘stitched in the ditch’ and trimmed up the sides to be square for the binding. I machine bins my quilts. I don’t have time or patience to hand bind them. Maybe one day.
The nursery is forest animal themed so I chose a cute back fabric to match. The finished size is about 30×37. Slightly smaller than I intended. But it’s for a tiny baby so it will be ok.
