Well, March is over, but I have one more finished quilt to show off:
This is Cluck Cluck Sew’s Pow-Wow Crib Quilt made from a kit purchased here. I have loved this pattern from afar for a long time, and when the kit version went on sale I couldn’t resist, even though I didn’t know who would receive the finished product. Our neighbors are such sweet people and so patient. Not only do they share a wall with our noisy family, but he also works for Handsome. Nothing like living 6ft. from your boss! They are having their second baby next month – a boy – and it seemed like a baby quilt was in order.
The original kit made a throw size, and I cut out enough fabric to make all of those blocks so I could use some on the back side. I added in a plaid shirting print I have had in my stash for about 5 years, and I really like how it works with the rest of the quilt. I think it adds to the boyishness, too. This was a great pattern, and really fun to make in a weekend from start to finish including straight line quilting on my machine. Now it’s all washed, dried and crinkly soft, waiting to be gifted. What? I’m done with a project ahead of time? Impossible!
I still have blocks left over and the pattern includes a scrap saver technique that leaves you with loads of leftover half-square triangles, too. I’ll have to find a way to use those up in a future project.
One of my favorite bits is the one camo chevron on the back, since this is for a Navy baby!
