You also have to be prepared to make more once you have finished yoru first one. As soon as the kids find out you can make them , they are sure to find a fabric that would be perfect in their room!
And really now that I have a full size pattern cut out and ready to go, the next two should go faster:)

Sadly I have not been keeping up on the photos of my latest projects.
This one is size 3-6 months. I found it on a web site that was featured on knittingdaily.com , a newsletter I get that has tons of info on crochet, knits and sewing.
Another helpful site is craftster.com. If you visit this one, make sure you make yourself a cup of tea and get comfy before entering! It is a community that has something for everyone and the pictures to prove it!

Much to my surprise, my husband had no clue I had taken on the challenge until he opened his package at our "house warming" party :)

Dear friends of our have been trying to have children for a few years now. This past week we celebrated the coming birth of their first "boy". They are due the begining fo February. This week was her last week of work so we had her baby shower now. The dr's say it's a boy, well with these gifts we are sure hoping the doctor isn't wrong!
This is a new technique I learned called chenilling. The duck is outlined and the star is chenilled and the yellow lines on the sides are chenilled. It is four fabrics sewed together than cut into strips then sewn in whatever design you want. It is a lovely way to accent a simple blanket.
As a side toy I made a fabric square. I had alot of fabric strips left over and raggedy squares from previous projects. So I sewed the strips of fabric together and folded them over. I sewed them onto the edges of raggedy squares.Then quilted in a simple square pattern.

I am also looking for ideas for baby quilts.... if you have any or seen a nice one somewhere, please share!
