I have been thinking about what I want the quilt to match the nursery bedding to look like for a while, but I could not make up my mind. I saw so many cute baby quilt pictures all over the place that kept making me change my mind on what I wanted to do.
But I have seen SO many different uses for bunting on Pinterest and other blogs that kept making me go back to that idea... So I made this little bunting quilt and I pretty much love it.
(Ignore my poor picture taking skills.)
I am not the greatest at making quilts because I rush through them too quickly... which I definitely did for this one, but I still like it a lot. Also, after these pictures were taken I sewed on a thicker binding because I didn't really like how thin this one was. The new one is about half an inch wider and it looks much better/cleaner now, I just didn't feel like re-taking pictures :) It looks the exact same though... just a little bit nicer.
I cut out triangles of heat 'n bond and ironed them onto the backs of all of the fabric that I wanted to use. Then I cut out the triangles, peeled off the heat 'n bond paper and ironed them onto the quilt where I wanted them to go.
I just used a zig zag stitch along the sides of each triangle and I like the way that looks.
I am pretty happy with it.
I've got another one planned that will just be more of a ''play mat'' to lay on the floor for her to play on using a bunch of random fabrics. I haven't started it yet, but hopefully I'll get it started and finished this week. It shouldn't take too long once I decide what I want it to look like. I'm sure if I were a normal person I'd want to take my time on it, but... I'm not... So I want to get it done as quickly as possible :)
