Ten Little Things

Here is a quilt that I made for the brand new son of my friend Jenny!  Benjamin was born on July 16th.  Ten Little Things - inmysewingroom.com

 

I first saw something similar to this quilt on Pinterest and I used my charm pack of Ten Little Things to to make this.  I quickly realized that I needed more then one charm pack!  Luckily I had other cute boy fabrics that I cut into to make a few more squares.  Ten Little Things by Kerrie SchwandtTen Little Things by Kerrie Schwandt

 

I did straight line quilting on this thinking it would add to the modern masculine design.  I was really happy with they way the quilting turned out!  I will definitely do this kind of quilting again I think.  Ten Little Things by Kerrie SchwandtTen Little Things by Kerrie SchwandtTen Little Things by Kerrie SchwandtI used red minky on the back.  I think minky is almost a must for baby quilts!  I also did an extremely fussy method of binding.  I wanted to carry the alternating red and brown colour into the binding and so I had to piece the binding slowly one section at a time.  It took twice as long as normal but I think it was worth it!

In case any of you are still wondering about my flood situation, I have been back living in my house for a week now.  I am still waiting to get my final insurance quotes back to start rebuilding my basement, but for now everything is back to normal!  Oh how I missed my sewing room!  I have been working away and soon will have another baby quilt to show you!
