Baby Eileen

One of my Good friend’s little sister’s had a baby this fall. I have known her since she was 11 – so for her to have a baby is a little mind blowing for me! Makes me feel a little aged to truthful!

I wanted to make something especially girly for baby Eileen and decided on a flower layout. This is a slight modification of a pattern from Sew Kind of Wonderful.

I just love that picture of Eileen enjoying the quilt with her grandma! ❤️

Baby Sawyer

My cousin welcomed her third bundle of love into the world at the end of July this year. Sawyer Abbot, their first son! She chose a real/yellow/grey colour scheme for his bedroom and her favourite design is chevron. This quilt decision was a no-brainer.

I captured these photos in the fading light of an August evening and I just love how it picks up the crinkle!

In addition to the quilt, I tried my hand at a Noodlehead Divided Basket and absolutely love how it turned out! I had made one earlier this year and had a few kinks to iron out. I am really happy with this one!

I also made a diaper clutch in coordinating fabrics. Not super happy with the finishing of it as directed by the pattern, but my cousin loved it, so she got it too!

Welcome Baby Sawyer!

A Thoughtful Baby Basket

I purchased the Divided Basket pattern, by Noodlehead last year sometime and have been meaning to make at least one. I finally made one for my friend’s new baby boy. I know I will be making more of these in the future! Such a fun project!

His mom had chosen fabrics from the Petals and Pinwheels line by Michael Miller for the nursery. So the fabric selection for this basket was easy, but still so fun!
