Holly from Bijou lovely has a truly great blog of quilting, crafting, sewing, and decorating among other things, but mainly quilting. A very talented, creative and fun girl she is! Just check out Bijou lovely creative Quilt finishes , be sure to visit these great tutorials, I have pinned a few myself! What a fun baby boy quilt this turned out to be...
Here's the simple stripes quilt I spent most of my time working on this past week. Our friends Sara and Ryan are having a baby boy in April, and their baby shower was this past Saturday. Of course I waited until six days before the shower to start making their gift! Why I procrastinate so much, I'll never understand.
Yes, this quilt has a mustache on it! My husband made me do it. When I told him I was making a quilt for them, he asked if I could add a mustache to the quilt. This new baby boy has a grandpa that is known for his mustache. The baby shower even had a mustache theme, so this fit in quite well!
I used lots of basic yellows, grays, blues, reds, and greens in this quilt that were slightly desaturated. The backing is a Denise Schmidt print from JoAnns. I bound it in some Kona Medium Gray. I quilted it with wavy lines (my new favorite!) in a light gray thread. The wavy line quilting is so fast and gives this quilt a little bit of texture. I appliqued the mustache on after the quilting was finished.
So there's my first finish of February! It definitely won't be the last.
