Right now I’m working on making a quilt for Alma’s new twin sized bed (!). She’s still choosing to sleep in her ‘baby bed,’ and we’re not pushing the issue. Since we got mini cribs for our kids, I was worried that they would outgrow them quickly. Alma totally fills up her crib, and so I thought she might be uncomfortable. Apparently she is not, since she keeps choosing to sleep in it.
Anyhow, I’m making her a full twin sized quilt. I’ve never made a quilt using any sort of sizing guide. I usually just make a quilt using triangles, squares, strips, or some other shape and sew them together until it’s about the ‘right’ size for a baby quilt. This time I’m using a real pattern.
I’m using the same blues and pinks and corals that are in Alma’s room and doing a sort of transitional ombre.
Since I’ve been working on the quilt so much, I haven’t had much time to create much else. Also, I’m trying to get back into the swing of things now that I’m totally not working at all anymore for a few months. Yay summer vacation!
Here’s a sneak peek of some of the fabrics that are going into the quilt:
