Abby's quilt

Hey everyone! I missed posting this weekend, I was busy with birthday festivities. We postponed Mason's party until Sunday, which worked out well because he was feeling much better (he had Strep). All the kids who were supposed to come on Saturday came the next day. We couldn't get in touch with one girl, so she showed up on Saturday...I felt so bad! But she came back on Sunday so it all worked out.
I can show you the baby quilt I made for my new niece! I sent it to her last week so I won't spoil the surprise now. I forgot to take pictures after I got it bound, labelled and washed but these will have to do! I was in such a hurry to send it off, I guess.
It's made with yellow and brown Lily and Will II fabrics from Bunny Hill Designs. I love the little bunnies worked into the elegant prints. The pattern is a freebie I found at Moda Bake Shop, called Lap Quilt in a Jiffy by Kari Ramsay. It required a layer cake, 1/2 yard of fabric for the binding, and three yards for the backing. It was a pleasure to make and I would definitely use this pattern again.
Today I woke up with a stomach bug. I went back to sleep for three hours after the school bus came! So unlike me. I still don't feel so great but I'm hoping this doesn't last longer than the day. I'm going to go and get some ginger ale. Hope you're having a better day! Talk to you soon!

  1. Love the baby quilt! So glad Mason got to have his birthday party even if it was a day later.
    Hope you are feeling better! I am sickly today too ;(

  2. Happy to hear the party festivities were able to happen and Abby's quilt is soooo cute! Well done Auntie! Weird. Something must be going around because my husband came home from work sick as well. Same symptoms as you and took a 3 hour nap this afternoon. Feel better!!!!

  3. Jen, cute quilt! I'm sure your niece will love it! Glad Mason is feeling much better and was able to have his birthday a day late. Glad that little girl could come back the next day! lol

    Hope you feel better quickly! Not good when mom isn't feeling good!
