I think by June of 2015 I’d made about six or seven quilts. Ah well. Having an infant in the house put a bit of a damper on my sewing time. I have finally completed one quilt for 2016. Here it is!
It’s a simple charm quilt for a new little nephew I’m expecting to meet come July! His mother is planning an Under the Sea nursery and this hoarded Bartholomew’s Reef fabric was the perfect choice! My sister-in-law pieced the quilt and I did the quilting. I think it’s adorable. Simple, but adorable.
My local quilt shop has sold out of any Bartholomew’s Reef fabric so we chose a Riley Blake print for the back and used a Cotton + Steel print for the binding.
This is only my second quilt to free motion quilt so it’s not perfect but I was pretty happy with the way it came out.
If you look closely, you can see where I stitched his name. Can you tell what it says? 🙂 You can also tell my binding is a bit wonky. Oooops!
We also thought that a diaper bag was needed to go along with this baby quilt so we made a chubby charmer as a gift as well.
It was super fun to be able to gift these items to my sister-in-law and brother-in-law and I cannot wait to meet my newest nephew!
