Blog design and baby quilts

Blog design and baby quilts

Today, the hubs has started programming this blog, and while he isn’t finished, I am so grateful that he spent his lunch break making my design begin to come to life! Thank you lovey! So yes, the site is totally under construction, but it also works, which is awesome. :)

Also, in  between loads of laundry and whilst on the phone for hours with my mom and my cousin, I have finally cut all the strips needed to start sewing my baby quilt! With less than 3 weeks until her due date, I hope I can finish before she comes. I haven’t ever exactly made a quilt, however, but I can be optimistic, right? Here are the fabrics I am using:

From Left to Right: Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks Voile Four Square Sweet, Michael Miller's Pink Clover Dot, Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks Voile Honey Gold, Heather Bailey's Bijoux HB10-Gold, Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks Voile Four Square Sea

I will be using five squares of each of the above fabrics to accent this fabric (which, incidentally, is in the background of my previous post):

Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks Dobby - Square Dance - Blue

I made the pattern in Adobe Illustrator, which is nice because I get to play around with the locations of each of the fabrics and then essentially see the end product before I physically make it. It’s also extremely beginner-friendly, so it might just be possible to finish it before the baby comes, if I can manage to get more than a few hours in a day. :)
