When I was pregnant my nesting phase was not cleaning every inch of the house. I started sewing. I made burp cloths, bibs and blankets for my bun in the oven. I fell in love with making things and am still finding projects to do.
A baby blanket is the easiest thing to make. Take two pieces of material and sew them together. Turn right side out and top stitch, bam you are done! A quilt is a whole different ball game. I didn’t fully realize what I was getting into. I bought a rotary cutter. Best purchase I have ever made! Now I can say I can cut in a straight line. I started off with a simple pattern and a small size for Alex. The blanket is just over a yard. I thought doing squares would be easy. I didn’t realize that would be sewing 99 squares together. It took many hours, but it is done and I am happy with the results of my first quilt!
I would like to do more in the future. We will see what I come up with 🙂
