My Uncle contacted me one day and told me he'd seen my post on my first rag quilt. He said he had a good female friend who was pregnant and he wanted to give her a gift. He thought it would be nice if he gave her a gift made just for her, so he asked me to make her one . . . and he paid me! YAY to my first paying gig!! :oD
I used the same pattern from the tutorial I used the first time, and I love how it looks!
I picked some pink and brown flannel fabrics that were a little more sophisticated than traditional baby patterns.
My uncle's one request for this quilt was that I find a way to put the baby's name on it (Kaydence). So I made some iron-on applique letters and attached those to the bottom of the quilt.
My one regret with this is that the pink letter fabric kinda fades into the background. I think next time I'll pick a brighter pink (or a more "stand out" fabric).
I also did some appliques on the back! Cute, huh? :o)
I love how it turned out and I hope mama and Kaydence like it too!
Up next? Another quilt for my friend Jeremy and his upcoming bundle of joy. I'll keep you posted! :o)
