Nursery bedding & Gifts for Isabel

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I made a baby blanket! I've never made any kind of quilt or bedding before, so I'm thrilled that the result is something I can be proud of, even as a first time out. I'm also very happy with the pattern matching on the top front and side of the bench cushion. Perfect! It wasn't easy, as this fabric is printed oddly - off-center motifs made it quite a challenge to match patterns and have seams placed where I wanted them. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just have fun and enjoy the process. Creating a nursery was one of the most special projects I've ever worked on. Vanessa's class was a great idea source and project inspiration. PS: Minky is very stretchy...I pulled it taut on the felt of a billiard table, pinned the heck of to it to the quilt top, and it's still too large! Live and learn.

What you will need

  • One of my oldest & dearest friends is expecting her first child
  • a girl
  • in October. She liked the print and colors of a set she'd seen made from these fabrics but wanted different pieces and more customization for her nursery.
