I've been making a quilt for Noah's "big boy bed" which he'll move into when baby #2 comes....and now all the squares are finally cut, and most are sewn on! Now I just have to stitch it together, add a boarder, backing etc.....It'll go with his boat/beach themed room. I've been looking for a quilt like this forever, and if I see one its not quite right, and its a billion dollars, or its from like Pottery Barn Kids, and you can't ship it to SA. This is made from scraps from my mother-in-law's workroom (she does baby rooms!) so so far it hasn't cost a cent. Quilting fabric here is over 10 dollars a meter, cause its shipped from America. So I've been quite blessed to get all this fabric, and its perfect!
It's been fun making up the patterns and figuring out what goes where. Here's the bottom half. Its' alot more work than it looks actually!
I can't believe I'm already making a quilt for his big boy bed! He's been looking more and more like a "big boy" lately, and saying more words every day. His latest is "bye bye!" which he says when anyone leaves the room.
Maybe I'll be ambitious enough to make a quilt for baby #2, but I've gotta know if its a girl for sure first!
