Alphabet Quilt


My mom made this adorable little quilt for Baby T.

She picked up the vintage reproduction alphabet squares at a quilt show.  She knows I like vintage reproduction fabrics.  I just love the quaint little illustrations.

I think the quilt is especially cute topped with a baby in a strawberry hat.  But that’s just me.

My first pieced together quilt


Introducing, my first ever pieced together quilt! I made it as a baby gift for my childhood friend’s first sweet baby. She wanted purples and blues, so here’s what I came up with. My amazing mom-in-law helped me EVERY step of the way. I couldn’t have done it without her!

My mother-in-law added these sweet frills: the baby’s monogram, a surprise cupcake stitch, and a patch on the back of the quilt with all the important info. :) Very nice!

Pretty fabrics for a baby quilt


Happy Saturday all! Just writing this post is making me remember how much I’ve missed youfrillme. It’s been a few crazy weeks of summer fun, traveling, transitioning, job searching, etc. Hopefully I’ll be a bit better about posting in the coming weeks.

So my best friend from childhood is due to have her own sweet girl this October. And since we have been the best of friends for the better portion of our lives AND I just happen to be out of school (and therefore, less busy) for the first time ever, I’ve decided to have a go at my first ever pieced quilt.

Pictured above are the fabrics I’ve chosen, according to my friend’s purple, blue, and teal color scheme she has chosen for her nursery. What do you think? I can’t wait to get to work and show y’all the pattern I’ve chosen for the quilt!
