Aaahhh ... The Life of a Baby

Yep, that pretty much sums it up.

I saw this quilt "recipe" on Moda Bake Shop by V and Co. I thought it was adorable and just had to give it a try!

I chose to use some polka dots in gender nuetral colors. Also, after much considersation I went with invisible thread for the letters since I still struggle a bit with applique. It hid all the imperfections beautifully! Although I must say after this project I'm feeling lots more comfortable with applique!

This lovely quilt is intended for an old college friend who is expecting her first little one. Since hers has not arrived yet, my munchkin was more than happy to be the model for pictures of it! Then of course the other two could not be left out!




Excited to link up with "Sew & Tell Friday". Go check out the other goodies!
