Mr. Aitch’s niece is expecting in July and I thought I’d make something as that’s what I do. Her theme is woodlands, bears specifically.
The baby shower is later this month and knitting a blanket wasn’t going to happen so sewing something was quicker.
I bought this cute bear fabric (by Emma & Mila at Wal-Mart) and coordinating blues and grey for the top as well as some white tone-on-tone star fabric and star embossed grey minky.
The solid grey and pale teal blocks help transition between the two colors.
Machine sewn and quilted with an X secured the top and backing with a thin layer of batting between.
The finished quilt is 45 inches square. The back looks metallic but that’s just how the light reflected off the furry surface. I have more fabric left so I’m thinking of sewing a few accessories such as burp cloths and at least one box bag. Any other suggestions?
Find coordinating ribbon and make a taggie to love when baby can’t bring the whole blanket somewhere. Grosgrain and smooth for a bit of texture.
A changing pad, bibs, soft toys? It is so cute, and the contrast will be visually appealing to little one as they grow.
I really love how it turned out….sweet design. I NEED to see again!!! Too long…..
Wow! That’s gorgeous!
