Finally, Baby Quilt done and gifted!

My first chevron and my first baby quilt! I made this for my grandson Noah, due to arrive Feb 25th!
I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am! It received alot of ooh's and ahh's at the shower.

A little of the making of it....

I doubled up on the batting as I wanted him to be able to use it for the floor. It also makes the machine quilting look more dimensional.

I am currently working on a 2.5 inch block scrap quilt. Just going from light to dark..making 9 patches first, then sewing them into rows of 7. This one will be for my living room, somthing to cover up with while watching TV. The variation of colors looks much nicer in person, I couldn't quite capture it with my camera.I now have two full rows of 9 patches sewn together...I am just making the nine patches now, until I have enough to just sew them all together. I plan on doing a 3-4 inch border all around.

Some of these scraps are from previous sewing projects, but I also have a friend that sews and she has been bringing me bags of scraps...I am thrilled that she does and I plan on using them always!

Feel free to leave me a link to your scrap projects or baby quilts, I would love to visit and see what you are working on!

Thanks for stopping by!!
