…waits until a week before the baby shower to start the baby quilt?
I went back and forth about whether or not to even make a quilt. It is so much easier to pick something off the registry, isn’t it?
When I finally decided to go for it, I wanted to do something that would be pretty quick to make.
I chose the Baby Life Quilt by V and Co. I think it’s so cute!
A kind friend was sweet enough to cut out the letters for me using her cutting machine. I don’t think I would have been able to get them done so quickly and neatly by hand.
Laying out the letters took longer than I thought it would. I think mostly because I’m a bit particular about the spacing being just right.
Although I wasn’t crazy about the color lilac, I went with a lilac background and green and burgundy accents since lilac is one of the mom-to-be’s favorite colors. But after getting half of the letters appliqued on, I started having second thoughts about the background color.
I’m plugging away and hoping to get it done before the baby shower this weekend. Wish me luck!
