My coworker is expecting her first child in February and her nursery colors are aqua, green, orange and some gray.
I backed it in Kona Bahama Blue. The only part I'm not completely happy with is the binding. It really needs a darker binding but I convinced myself a white/green polka dot from my stash would work.
I also had time to make a few other little gifts--some flannel burp cloths and a monster bib. (Though I was seriously sewing the bib the morning before the shower.) And after all this sewing, I still had to fight the urge to race to Target and buy something off the registry to add to my handmade gifts.
I normally don't give alcohol-themed baby gifts (the burp cloth) but daddy-to-be works at a brewery, brews as a hobby, and the baby shower was held at the brewery so I though it was appropriate in this case.
I'm so glad to have this project done. Now it's time to start in on my Christmas sewing to-do list!

The converging corners quilt is my favorite project of 2012.
I just love how your converging corners came out! Are the colored blocks a brainstorm? I don't remember seeing them in the earlier versions, but I LOVE them! Fabulous!ReplyDelete
