I’ve been feeling quilty lately. Baby showers seem to be the best inspiraion for me. I gives me a deadline and an excuse to give a gift that will last instead of something that will be used for a month or two and then donated.
I have few baby gifts that we still use now that my youngest is a year. One of them is a small sampler quilt that my mom picked up at at a truck stop somewhere outside of Payson, Az.
Here’s the version I created. I think it turned out really well. I had a couple different quils in mind when I desgined this. PurlBee lists a great tutorial. Crazy Mom Quilts had a beautiful version. Don’t forget this sassy one too.
I used 6or 7 different greens that I picked up at JoAnns. The brown is a super soft linen blend. The backing is Alexader Henry’s Giraffe Crossing.
When I asked the mama-to-be what her nursery theme was she said giraffes and outdoorsy colors. I hope it fits in okay. If not I know quite a few boys here that would be happy to keep it!
(That’s my 6’2″ brother for size reference!)
