Fabric for Baby Quilts
My Sister came to visit while she was on Spring Break she wanted to go get some fabric for the inside of her purse. So, I took her down to Jo-Ann's. She did end up finding something she liked, but I also had to purchase fabric. We have a cousin that is having a baby boy soon, whom we don't know that well, but we were invited to the shower (in Califorina!?!!) (Have I mentioned I live in the beautiful state of North Carolina?) I had looked at baby flannel prints previously, unenthusiastic about any I had not made a purchase. I found these prints and a great idea of how to cut the yards down in order to make three blankets out of three yards, not including the backing (I have a co-worker having a boy also). I was very excited to find these. Prints for boys really are lacking in the fabric world they either are adolcent boy prints with writing or they just seem silly. I enjoy crafting, however I feel that 80% of the stuff out there to craft from is tacky! I am fairly traditional when it comes to picking fabrics, especially when it comes to baby stuff! I settled for the moon and stars and polk-a-dots. it was not my first pick. The solids were very cheap as well. I will post a finished picture soon since my co-worker's shower is on Friday! I enjoy fast quilting sometimes!
Oh yes! Here is 'Fat Girl' draped in ribbon. She is so patient to let my sister do this to her. She loves the attention though. Can't you tell. She adores my sister.
