I visited my LQS today to find fabric for a baby gift for my nephew's first child. I always have such fun when I'm fabric shopping, especially at my local shop. I can spend hours in there just looking and touching. I've had the pattern for several months, but now that I've received the shower invitation, I guess it's time to start sewing.
I don't know if they are having a girl or boy so I bought neutral colors which I just love. The rick-rack is brown. I was debating on yellow or brown but I thought the yellow looked too girlie. The stripe fabric will be on the back and showing when the quilt is folded. The pasley will be the outside pocket. The multi-colored circles fabric will be the inside and the solid orange will be the pillow. The toy bag will be the solid orange and circles. I think it's going to turn out really cute for either a girl or a boy. I will not be there though to hear the whoos and ahhhs, since they are in another state.
My LQS, like all other shops hosts a variety of kits with very talented owners who display the kits in the perfect spots in their stores. I found this cute kit that includes the fabric and pattern to make a baby blanket, bib, and burb-cloth....of course I could not pass it up.
Have a great weekend and happy quilting....DeAnna S.
