I'm hoping that this has arrived safely at its new home and I'm not spoiling a surprise.
Last summer I made a quilt for a special little guy who's mother I absolutely adore. This left me with an abundance of leftover fabric in bright, little boy patterns.
Since I am just getting into quilting, I am trying to build a stash...but I have to be picky as we have so little space in our current home.
So I was delighted when a friend was able to sucessfully get pregnant....and found out it is a boy.
So here is what I came up with to use up as much of those scraps as I could. Completely different from the original quilt.
I love this Robert Kaufman planet fabric. The colors are amazing.
I used some larger pieces on the back and pieced it also.
Slowly but surely I am teaching myself how to do this. I have found a quilt shop in the area that does classes so I'm sure I'll be taking one as soon as I can. The actual quilting of the layers together is giving me fits.
