February Goal... Success!

Using my time management ideas that I outlined on my goals post, I was able to whip February's ALYOF goal out in no time! I added the border, basted it and then quilted lines diagonally both directions through the squares. Here is little Peter's quilt (born in January to one of my college friends). It has already been packed up and mailed out. I hope the little baby (and his parents) enjoys it!

The fabric is from a fat quarter bundle I purchased from Fat Quarter Shop. It's called Amusement Park by Anton & Ink for Camelot Cottons. It was on sale (less than $2 a fat quarter if I remember right), and I thought it was a great collection for baby boys - I have plenty of options for girls, but my boy fabric options were a little slim. I cut the bundle into charms and 2.5" strips. I have enough for another baby quilt, plus some got put away into my scrappy 5" baggies and into my I-Spy charm baggie. I purchased 1 yard of the red dots to border two baby quilts.

I "stole" the backing from Mom's stash. We were going through her stash and organizing and cleaning out, and we decided that this panel would be a perfect backing. I love each of the bears. The sleeping bear is dreaming about what he'll be when he grows up and each letter of the alphabet has a different career (except X, Y, Z). It's definitely not a modern motif, but I don't think Peter (or my friend) will mind! Yay for stash busting!

  1. Super cute baby quilt finish. My experience is that babies are not very critical they just like a quilt to be cuddle worthy and are not too interested in whether or not the motif is modern ;)

  2. A darling quilt! Have a lovely day! xo Heather
