I know my posts have been few and far between as of late. Please forgive me... my energy, motivation, and girth have been preventing me from doing much more than making it through each day, usually still in my pjs, with lots of resting and putting up of feet. But as you can see, I have accomplished a few things, like baby girl quilts! And an almost put-together nursery! So let's start here, with my favorite part, the quilts!
(The chevron crib sheets are from Target! One in grey, and one in pink! Love them!)
All the fabrics were pulled out of my stash aside from the large "reads as solid" chunk on the right. The colors I chose are meant to be feminine, but not overly girly... I love the grey and navy blue fabrics that make it a bit more sophisticated. All 8 wonky blocks were made in one sitting thanks to my extremely awesome friend Jaclyn who pressed and cut while I sewed! That gave me the motivation to buy the coordinating front fabric from my fav LQS and the flannel Riley Blake Chevrons for the backing! Can I just say - high quality (non-Joanns) flannel is worth every penny to back a quilt!? SO SOFT and does not pill up or get stiff.
A bit of squiggly quilting with my walking foot for the large panel, and free-motion squares... in the squares! I kept it somewhat sparse to maximize softness and drape - I hope the girls love them!
If you know me at all, I'm usually all about scrappy binding but these quilts called for a more subdued frame since the blocks are rather busy! Heath by Alexander Henry in lavender purple, and another of my favorites... Aqua Midwest Modern II by Amy Butler, called "Floating Buds."
A couple embroidery hoops filled with scrap fabric from the quilts... plus two purple rain cloud hoops and two stinking adorable owl softies handmade by Jaclyn...
...turns a blank room into a nursery suited for two baby girls!
Opposite (behind me) is a dresser with diaper changing area, thats it! I guess I keep things simple. Because once these girls arrive, NOTHING will be simple anymore! haha!
Today (March 21st) I'm officially "full-term" at 36 weeks, belly pic coming soon! Maybe I can even get Eli to be in one with me. He kisses his baby sisters at least once a day and he loves to feel my belly then say "One kicked me!"
Thanks for stopping by!
