So, on Saturday my great nephew was born about 5 weeks early. He is perfect. However I had to hurry and finish his dog quilt. This was fun to make. The most time consuming part was the cutting out of all the pieces. I don’t really see it being used as a quilt to cover up with. More of lay the baby on the quilt kind of thing. I made it all from flannels so it is very soft. This was made from Simplicity 4993. It has a dog, bear and cat patterns. Since I am the crazy dog lady, this is quilt that would definitely come from me.
My daughter had not ever remembered me making a “rag quilt” before and insisted that the back was the front and I put the face of the dog on the wrong side.
Now to get a couple more items for Ethan and his big sister before mailing the package off.
It always feels good to complete something.
