baby quilt in a day ...

Well, not quite a day! But close!

My kids attend a before and after school program. Since both my husband and I work, it's a necessity as we can't really leave them to fend for themselves at 7 and 9.

So the wonderful Amy who takes care of our kids, is about to start a new adventure into mommyhood. She is due to have her first little angel on October 25th. Silly me thinking I had lots of time to make this little boy a quilt, suddenly realized TODAY is her last day at work!! So I frantically started making a quilt. It's not done, but it's close.

I based the quilt on the tutorial for a pillow by Elizabeth at Oh Frannson!

I had lots of scraps left over from another project, so I didn't even have to buy fabric ... and here is a little sneak peak.



I'll post more pictures when it's done ...

I have to get back to it ... only a few hours to go!!


  1. I have that polka dot print from Joann's in white with green dots and white with blue dots:) Can't wait to see the finished product!!
