If I haven't mentioned this before... I'm a sucker for cute fabrics. It's hard for me to see one, have it be on sale... and not get the urget to purchase a yard or two - without a plan. Guess what happened the other weekend? I purchased a few different cutesy cotton fabrics while I was shopping for the crib bumper fabric... and came home with these... plus 2 yards of grey minky fabric that was on clearance.
There are also a few swatches that I had ordered from Spoonflower.com when I was originally trying to pick out crib bumper material. PS: have you ever visited this website? It's the "etsy" of fabric stores! Endless possibilities!
What do you do with minky fabric? Quilt I guess... I really didn't have a plan for any of this - so off to google I go... searching baby blanket ideas, and came across this cute one from Noodles & Milk.
Super cute, and seemed to be a size I could manage as this would be my first quilting experiment. I'd say it went pretty well. I was intimidated by the minky fabric as it has lots of give... but it was easier than I had imagined - phew!
I ended up making three - two for me and one as a gift (gift one is not shown)... to keep it a secret until delivered!
What do you think?
