When I was about 20 weeks pregnant with my little Peanut I started this quilted blanket, I wanted something colorful to match the nursery but I ran out of fabric to finish up the binding and stayed in my to-sew pile for months!! Luckily a few weeks a go I finally had some time and finish it up.
I didn’t finnish the blanket in time for winter, but at least is perfect for Conner to play and perfect for little naps =]
Even though i’ve done quilted things before, this was my very first time making a blanket, I started drawing the chevron on Illustrator and sizing to the exact measurements I wanted. then cut all my pieces and assemble. I know that there is tons of tutorials out there that show how to make chevron quilts, so I didn’t make a tutorials for it. I’m planning on making a different one, but I have no idea when I’ll be able to start. (hopefully my second quilt will get done before Conners second birthday ha!)
Thanks to my handsome husband, I was able to take pictures of the front and back =] After making this I have a whole different level of respect for quilts, I made my pieces pretty big, so I can only imagine how much work making a small little piece’s quilt is going to be, the funny part is that it actually excites me.
I already have the plans and the drawing of my second quilt, I’m just hoping I can start working on it soon, my plan was to make it for Conner’s first birthday, but as I said I’m aiming for his second birthday now! I know, bad sewer!!
Do you have a favorite quilt pattern? I’m not good at patterns (because I never use patterns) but I’m thinking about researching for the next one, would you mind sharing your favorites!
I hope you all have a lovely day!
