I've made a baby quilt for all of my children just before they were born. Andrea got hers when she was few months old (in 2002) because I hadn't sewn for few years back then. I started that passion again the year she was born.
My little lad (I think we have decided on his name... to be announced later!!) was born April 2nd and of course I made him a quilt too. I just haven't bloged about it before.
I saw the pattern at Thimble Blossoms's site and as I usually do, I found out myself how to make it. I found the fabrics at Fat Quarter Shop (I buy 90% of all my fabrics there) and bought one 12 FQ bundle.
I decided to cut the fabrics in front of the tv (the first and only time I've done that LOL!). One evening I sat down to watch and started cutting... and cutting and cutting and... when the film was over I realized I had cut ALL 12 FQ till they were finished and I had enough for six baby quilts!! - So there was nothing to do but make more than one quilt. I decided to make four and keep the rest of the hexagons for something else, like a bag or something :)
Of course I had to order more fabrics for the borders and backing. I finished my son's quilt and I have only the quilting of the other three to finish. They are all like the first one except for the borders. I'll show you the three others when I'm finished but here is my son's quilt
Pattern: kind of myself but here you can find a similar one
