Busy bees

Spring is the time of year when everything starts getting busy: the flowers are busy blooming, the bees are busy collecting pollen and women are showing the signs of getting busy in the fall (if you know what I mean), so needless to say, that finds me busy making baby quilts!


I finally got some free time (thanks hubster!) to do some serious sewing, so without further ado, I present my second (or third, but really, who's counting?) baby blanket this year!

I picked up a 12-piece flannel fat quarter set (so soft!) at a local craft store, so I'm not sure what lines these fabrics are from, but they sure are cute! This pattern uses six fat quarters, so I split up the fat quarter set into two different colorways and am working on a second quilt in the same pattern, to be finished sometime in the future.

This quilt was supposed to be gender-neutral because the couple it is intended for is not finding out what they are having, but since the mom will be induced tomorrow, three weeks ahead of schedule, I guess that's a moot point now!

Of course, I had to take a picture of the section that has crooked quilting lines...

The new baby has an older sister, so I will make her a couple of drawstring bags, probably using this tutorial, as a big sister gift. Or consolation prize, depending on who you talk to :) I will post those once they are done.

Hope you have a great week!


  1. Turned out so cute!! Happy mother's day!!

  2. Love the bag tutorial you used! Now I've got one more thing to add to my "to make" list! :P
