I am thrilled to have finished some gifts for my dear friend's baby boy who was born last week!
Obviously I had to make a quilt and I used this lovely 'Windy Days Quilt' pattern. It came together easily but I was stumped how to quilt it until I saw Judith's beautiful vintage quilt and decided to do the same. I knew my friend wanted simple, she's far more sophisticated than me, so I wanted to go for something modern but classic; sweet but not too baby. I think the overall low volume works really well for her taste. I used Kona Snow for the background so it stayed warm and neutral.
I originally bought the fabric for this quilt not knowing the gender so went with the gorgeous Bunny Hill Designs fabric. I used a layer cake of Windsor Lane in green (not all of it so you may see some crop up again!) and the backing and binding fabrics are from the Puttin On The Ritz collection. I added an embroidered label.
I adore these prints and love the grey binding.
This is also a finish checked off my list for this quarter's Finish-A-Long at Quilter in the Gap.
In addition to the quilt I made a couple of bibs using this Clover and Violet tutorial for the small one and this tutorial by Kim for the larger one.
Last night I went for a visit and gave the gifts to the happy new parents and they were thrilled. I was delighted to get to have gorgeous cuddles with the little baby boy, I'd forgotten how tiny newborns are! He is utterly darling and such a content baby. He slept in my arms for a little while and I had such a thrill thinking of having my own in the new year. So precious.
So now it's over to you... any finishes this week?
