I have been super busy creating a stash of super cute baby gifts for my new nephew "turtle." The main project I have been working on has been this quilt....
I think it turned out really nice. It was my first time actually using multiple intricate fabric patterns and also different fabric materials. The yellow turtle fabric is a soft fleece and the printed turtle fabric and the solid colors surrounding it are all cotton. It was a fun challenge. I actually finished the entire project from start to finish in about 7 hours. I think I did Pretty good I might add. Boy let me tell you it was so unbelievably hard to find fabric with a turtle print on it. I was terrified that the contrasting fabrics and colors wouldn't go well together but all in all I am pretty pleased with the end result and my Mom and Brother were head over heals for the quilt....looks like I might be making more quilts in the near future.
I even inspired my mom to get a little crafty and make a couple of things for little "turtle."
(She created this onesie for our family photo for him to wear....it still swallowed his entire body. He is such a little pea.... 6 weeks at 6 lbs)
