Baby quilts galore!

Well actually, not galore.. because there’s only two, but you get the idea!  When two of my friends told me they were pregnant, after the initial shock wore away, I got excited to make them baby quilts.  I was hoping that at least one of them would have a girl, so I could make a cute girls quilt, but I had no such luck for they were both having boys.  That didn’t stop me from making two cute quilts though!

Here’s the first one:

All ready to give away!

 

 

Here’s the second one:

The colors are a little off here.

All ready to go!  I think this one shows the true colors the best.

 

As you can see, they’re not perfect, but they’re good enough for me!  These were the first quilts I’ve ever done.. and although it’s kind of frustrating and time consuming (even when I did these super easy ones!) I think I’m hooked.  I want to make a quilt for my bed but I’m kind of scared I’ll never finish it, haha.

      Thanks! These two quilts were my first.. I kind of just jumped into it.. I looked online for some tutorials but ended up just doing it my way, haha. It was time consuming but so addictive!

    haha, I say go for making your own! I’m currently making a king-sized quilt for my boyfriend. (even though he’s too warm and will probably never use it anyway) I love the feeling of the finished product. anddd don’t worry if it takes you awhile to finish it. even the best quilters (aka my grandma) take forever to finish projects sometimes
