Forest Fun!

I am charging forward with the new baby room. I have the dust ruffle for the crib finished and I sent it home with my daughter. I will have to take a picture when everything is on the crib and all is done.
Here are the pictures I took as I finished all the pieces. It is really quite nice in person. The pictures do not do it justice. the deer are appliqued on and the grass is stitched on with a satin stitch.

I found some fun forest looking fabric on sale at Hobby lobby and off I went. Made a quick extra quilt. The borders match the 2 sheets I made her. I love it when it all falls together.

I still have the bumper pads to do but she wont use them right away so I decided to take a break and use up some stash. I am not a blue person and I had a bunch of blues from the lot I bought a few years ago. Cut them all up! Tonight I have a Friday fun night project. Just me, Netflix and the hum of my sewing machine. Life is good.....

New Baby!

It has been a few weeks since I have posted but I have not been idle. I have gotten lots done but very few big finishes. I did manage to quickly quilt up this last state flower quilt. I have made 2 others just like it and maybe will pass it along, not sure where it will go but I just did the simple stipple and quilted it up. I am not crazy about the binding but it was from my stash, so no money spent. Success!
Now the big project begins. My daughter is expecting her second baby in April. It's a boy! We found a crib set she liked but it was just silk screened on the fabric and not exactly as nice as I would like so...... I took the pictures and decided to applique on the designs. I'm not sure I realized how much work it would be and how much figuring out I would have to do but,,,I think I made it. the figuring and cutting was the biggest hurdle. So here is the process and results.
The quilt. it is put together and appliqued. I am going to quilt the green like grass with big long lines and make it look like tall grass. I think it will be beautiful quilted up. the grass on the white part is stiched on with an applique stitch. I am thinking of adding another border. thoughts?
I also made her 2 sheets for the crib to match.
I quickly made a receiving blanket in the woodsy theme.
I also cut out all the pieces for a dust ruffle that will have the deer on them and a bumper pad.i got 2 sides of the dust ruffle done with the deer, no grass yet. but progress.
I needed a break from the deer so in between the deer I am quickly throwing together a woodsy quilt, blocks are done.
Bumper pads are cut so my serious work is ahead of me.It will be lovely when done!
