For months, I've been waiting for some baby quilt inspiration/time/energy. But alas....it hasn't really happened. Until this weekend, that is. When for some bizarre reason, upon facing "wash the shower" next on my to-do list, I suddenly found quilt inspiration and motivation that pulled me away from my task. See how that works?
I knew I didn't have a lot of time to dedicate to sewing (there was that shower...and a million other things to return to), and truthfully, my body isn't all that comfortable sitting at the sewing machine for long these days. And so...this simple little quilt was born.
I started with this (crazy-good-soft) corduroy from good-ness; added a panel of some favorite prints (including the blue Ring around the Rosy by Heather Ross I've been hoarding) and a soft, organic cotton fleece on the other side (this from Very Baby). A little bit of cotton batting in the middle, and some ties to finish it all off. Voila! A quilt-like blanket for babe.
Each of my little ones have arrived in a season of their own. I love that. And I love that a bit of this season's colors and textures worked their way into this simple little blanket for my autumn baby.
