I wasn't in a hurry to make Harvey a baby blanket. I mean, yes, I'd made him like 10 baby blankets, but not his baby blanket. You know, that was quilted and special.
Well, my mom was feeling bad for her only grandbaby, and so she surprised us with one! It's so cute and it's the perfect colors (I'm just assuming he will love deep greens and blues as much as his mama :) .
The aspen fabric is my favorite.
^^^ I love secret messages on quilts!
And because I didn't know she was working on a quilt, I was collecting fabrics for a quilt too! I have been thinking about Harvey's big boy room (it's going to be AWESOME!), and found the perfect stack of colors to go with it.
I didn't mean to start/finish the quilt so fast. I mean, he's still a baby! He doesn't need a twin quilt yet! But whatever, I just couldn't help myself :)
I accidentally sewed one line of triangles upside down, but I remember taking a folklore class in college and learning that in the olden days, quilters would make one mistake in their quilts on purpose. So yeah. Me too. And I made sure to sew everything super tight and strong, even doing a zip-zag stitch around the binding, because I didn't want to risk it splitting open during a jump-on-the-bed party.
Also, my mom made this:
I know! I play with it all the time! All of Mr. Turtle's appendages tuck into his shell. Sigh. It's super cool.
And this concludes the post on how Harvey is super spoiled with handmade goods.
Over and out!
