Quilts


I’ve been quilting in my spare time, and today we (Matt has probably done at least a third of this quilt) finished one!!! I’m so excited. We did the whole thing, from the appliqué to the quilting to hand binding this thing. It took us around two months to finish it!

Matt said it should have said "poop" too. But I didn't think that was very lady or gentleman like.
I really like the diamond quilting and the polka dot binding.

Of course, this isn’t the first quilt that I’ve done. This summer I’ve been finishing up quilts that I made forever ago (maybe 6 years ago?), and I’m currently working on baby’s crib quilt. (I’ll put pictures up when I’m done. It’s probably my favorite of the 4.)


The binding isn't finished on this one yet. 
And last and not least, I made crib fitted sheets last night. They were really easy, and they match the crib quilt. :)



Matt is slightly worried, since I'm running out of projects to do. A baby only needs so many quilts, receiving blankets, sheets, and burp pads, and we are pretty sure we've reached the limit. So we'll see what I end up doing next.

  1. I'm making a sleeve for the blessing dress right now. I should teach you to crochet or knit.

  2. I would love to learn how to knit! There is a random list of things that I would like to knit, but I can't quite follow the directions.

  3. Hey Michele here's a few project ideas that I've been thinking of doing that I think are really cute and look super easy.
