I made my niece Jess a quilt (well almost…didn’t quite get it done in time!) for her baby shower. I had seen something she had pinned on Pinterest and thought it was especially cute!
I just used a bleached muslin for the background and I think I will use it for the backing as well…
Sam was my reluctant assistant!
I used bias tape to link the triangles.
I think Jess liked it! And she said…I pinned a baby quilt like this!! I said I know!!
I took fabric scraps and made the card to coordinate…
I used some glitter and glue to write Baby on the pennants and took some bakers twine to make the hanger for the banner. I braided it and cut the ends so they could “blow” in the wind!
I also made the banner to decorate the gift table at the shower…Jess can also use that in her nursery.
One of the fun things at the shower was that each attendee was asked to bring a onesie that reflected something about them.
I made a tie applique on this one and also made one for my mom to bring that had rick rack. We have a joke about how much rick rack my mom used on our clothes growing up!
We did have a lot of fun watching Jess guess who brought each onesie!
I am linking to these great parties!
