{gettin' all crafty}

I finally did it. I made a piece quilt. I have never made a quilt before, and I've seen some cute ones here and there, so I really wanted to do one for my baby, Coy. I don't know if I did it right, I just kind of made it up. So here it is. Hopefully it doesn't fall apart after one wash!








OK, does anyone really need to take this many pictures of one quilt? Sheesh! That's me for you.

Good thing my August baby will have a nice heavy quilt to keep him warm. (just a little sarcasm)Does anyone else find it extremely, extremely hot outside? I don't know that I've ever felt so hot in my entire life! I now know what a summer pregnancy really feels like. Even though I had Bennett in October and was pregnant through the summer, it was no where NEAR this bad. Oh well, only 3 weeks left!!!
If anything, the quilt will be cute for pictures!!! I am so excited to take pictures of my own newborn. (poor kid...he will be sick of me before we know it!)

I've never made (or sewn) anything for my babies before (except for making bows for Mylie), but I'm finally getting a little domestic with this one. I've also made some burpies (remember the etsy ones? I ended up just deciding to make my own!), and new covering for the mattress and bumpers for the old family cradle my Dad made long ago. I guess it makes a difference when you have a sewing machine (even if it is a cheapy one!)

WOW, thats great! The quilt is beautiful. You did a great job. lOVE the fabric you used. I would love to see pictures of all the other stuff too. It amazes me that you could get all that done. I am so slow at sewing stuff. and chosing fabric takes me forever!

I LOVE this quilt! The fabric on the back is one of my favorites...mega soft! I can't believe you only have 3 weeks left! I hope everything goes well.

So cute! I will be getting a sewing machine soon, and I can't wait to make things like this! I can't believe only three weeks left! (I guess a pregnancy goes by faster when it's not yourself!)

What Em? You only have 3 weeks left. It has been way too long since I have seen you, as always. I can't wait to see your new babe. I love the name Coy, I love your cute quilt, I love your diaper bag, and of course I love all of your fabulous pictures. I can't wait for you to take some of my new little one. (Yep, #4 coming in March!!!)
