Beautiful Baby (and Blanket)

Just in time for the birth of a beautiful baby girl, I finished the baby quilt I told you about last week…and accidentally made two more quilt tops! I was using a pattern from a book and figured the top would be too big so I’d just have two baby quilts on hand. Turns out that I had enough to make one baby quilt and two throw quilts…one for me and one for my sister. (I did cut up the fabric that was supposed to be the backing to expand the quilts. Had to buy more backing but that wasn’t a problem because my favorite quilt shop was having a huge sale. That’s the good news. The bad news is the sale was their closing sale…they’re going out of business…so bummed!)

I couldn’t stop myself from adding ruffles to my baby quilt. After all, I have two boys here and no ruffles to be seen. I don’t really know how to do ruffles but I improvised and it turned out quite cute, I think. But not as cute as the baby who will cuddle with it…
