The quilting bug has bitten again..... and I've finished my second quilt!
Some of you may remember my First Quilt that I made for Grayson for her birthday.
This new quilt too, is special. It was made for a college sister of mine, for her new baby. She will be having a little girl in just a few weeks! Her nursery will be blues, greens, and yellows (very much like Grayson's) so I wanted her to have something warm and soft to match her nursery.
The fabric for this quilt was from a jelly roll that I fell in love with at Hobby Lobby. I'm a sucker for blues and greens, so I bought it with no project in mind, and then HAD to use it for this quilt. I love how it turned out!
I threw in some white strips to lighten it up a bit.
The patterns have a few flowers and butterflies, but it doesn't scream GIRL. She will share a room with her brother (Grayson's age) for a while, so it won't be too girly for him too.
The backing is a solid teal cotton, and the binding is the same. I didn't want anything to compete with the pretty patterns on the top.
I'm not a quilting purist, so I machine quilted everything. The construction was simple, just sewing the jelly roll strips together for a clean line look. I straight-line quilted it, one line on either side of each seam.
This quilt would look PERFECT in Gray's room, but I am thrilled that it will be living with my friend and her new bundle of joy. I hope it keeps her toasty warm for a long time!
I have a plan for some mini-quilts coming up, but more on that later. It is going to be a very special project for me.
