3. Then, like the complete fool that I am, while I was at J’s I decided I could NOT resist the cute minky fabrics, and that they NEEDED to be made into a quilt. Do I quilt? No. but, I have friends that do. They have been kind enough to hold my hand, and the internet has been my friend as I’ve tried to figure it out. I’m actually almost done, but here’s the pictures I took yesterday before I tied the layers together. Hopefully I’ll do a post about what I’ve learned on it in a few days.
So, there you have it, nesting in full swing. I was also thinking I could use a few cute burp cloths, for church n’ stuff… I found this great tutorial. I am wondering about the batting in the middle though, do you think that’s OK? Anyone else have any great burp cloth patterns? I’m also gonna make a tiny little ribbon blanket with some scraps from my quilt. Although, my fingers are almost blistered to the bone, I just can’t stop 🙂 Someone help me. 🙂
wow, they are so cute hillary. good job. i like the purple one. Though i like almost everythin thats purple. But they are all fantastic.
Hi…I’m Allison’s sis-in-law…and I stop in to check your blog every once in a while…You wouldn’t have to use the warm-n-natural, seems like that would be too thick…you could try felt, if you want the absorbency or just use the fabric itself…the front and back seem just perfect…Congrats on the baby girl!! I love your blankies and WOW on your taking the time to crochet them…I have 4 girls…I don’t think any of my blankies were as cute as yours…and I’ve got gobs now…(the word verification is my last name…odd…)
Nesting. Love it. I kind of wish I could be in nesting mode all the time. Of course, I’d probably be exhausted if that were the case.
I think I love the red one the most too. All are adorable!

1. Totally cute. I wish I could crochet. I just never took.
2. Check my blog for my piano adventures lately. And go you for good use of the 50% off coupon.
3. I would leave out the batting. We used the snuggle flannel and sewed it like a pillowcase (turn it right side out to hide the seams) and a friend did the crocheting around the edges (they matched our assorted blankets). We had enough absorbancy with the two layers of flannel.

What names are you tossing around for the little female?

I am so impressed, you have inspired me to get sewing and do something with the pounds of fabric I bought. Here is the address to a burp cloth tutorial I found that I think I am going to try. http://chickpeastudio.typepad.com/chickpea_sewing_studio/diaper-burp-cloth-tutoria.html
Wow, the crocheting is so, so cute! I’m with you….love the red one! You will NOT be sorry about the minky quilt! Man, I love that stuff.
I’d agree to leave out the batting…too thick! Two pieces of your fabric should be absorbent enough. Heaven knows you live in a warm enough place and don’t need all the extra layers. Crocheting to match your blankets would be icing on the cake!
Super cute quilt and crocheting! I always wanted to learn how to make those edges around the blankets!
