I recently put together a little baby gift for Sarah, my friend from Five Camels. Now that she’s received it, I want to share.
I think the fabrics in the Bliss line by Moda would be perfect for a little girl. (If I were having a girl, these fabrics would be all over the nursery.) So, I put together a few bibs and a play mat/quilt.
I was quite smitten with the result.
These are pretty much my favorite fabrics, so I had them on-hand. I used the free pattern for bibs at Purl Bee. I used Velcro instead of snaps, since that’s what I had. I lined them with organic terry cloth from fabric.com
The quilt is 36×36 and I think it will make a wonderful play mat, with all the coordinating colors and patterns. It is a panel I picked up at the fabric store ages ago and has been waiting for the right project. I think this was it.
The backing is a Bliss for Moda dot I had in my stash.
I wanted to try free motion quilting on this, and I think it turned out pretty well.
I hope Sarah likes the gifts as much as I do. I usually try to make things that I love, but it also makes it harder to give them away.
But in this case, I’m just hopeful that the gifts can be useful for a precious little baby girl.
