My sister's baby girl is due to arrive any day now. Back in March I threw her a baby shower and go to give her all the handmade goodies I'd been working on.
I wanted to make some kind of blanket, though I'm not really a quilter at heart. I saw a tutorial at See Kate Sew for a modern triangle quilt and it felt like just my kind of project. I ended up making mine a lot smaller since I thought such a large quilt might not be so useful for a baby. I downloaded the pattern, cut all my triangles, laid them all out and started sewing. When I got ready to sew one row to the next, I kind of scratched my head and thought I had done something wrong. It seemed like there is not way to sew triangles together and get, TRIANGLES!
I kept sewing because after cutting all those triangles, there's really no turning back. A few weeks later, an updated pattern came out that actually makes triangles! The updated pattern is here. Too late for me.
I made a nursing pillow cover and basket liner as well. They all look so pretty together. I wasn't sure about the fabric, but I think it works.
I wish I had the time and energy to sew this kind of stuff for my babies. Can't wait to meet my new baby niece!
