I have a number of sewing goals this year. I would like to use up my current fabric stash and improve my quilting (piecing) skills.
A dear friend will be welcoming a baby girl into his home next month so I made this blanket using the tutorial at the Fat Quarter Shop. I am very pleased how the finished piecing turned out. This is a receiving blanket so it is backed with flannel (Timeless Treasures).
Fabric: The elephant fabric is "Play with me" by Stof; the florals are Amy Butler (Soul Blossoms and others I think); and the hot pink is Denyse Schmidt "Ansonia").
My sewing pal used some of the left over scraps and made a coordinating diaper pouch using Noodlehead's diaper pouch tutorial.
It feels so good to be sewing again and I am well into the next project.
Happy crafting and thanks for stopping by!
