Hiya, just a quick post today to show you what I’ve been up to this past week.
I am sending out a baby bedding set to a friend in CA. I wanted to try my hand at making bumpers, a fitted sheet and a crib size quilt. It was all quite easy, if not a little time consuming. I used Nu-foam pre-cut bumper pads which came with instructions for making the covers; essentially you make six pillows with ties. And I used a tutorial found on Pinterest for making the fitted sheet. The sheet tutorial used french seams in the corners which I thought was a nice touch.
If the quilt were any bigger, I’d keep it for myself. I fell in love with all the fabrics and stitches that went into it.
This size quilt (about 37×48) was really fun to make and much easier to quilt than a full-size one. If you haven’t quilted before and want to try, I’d recommend starting with a baby quilt.
