Nursery projects

Still working on the back of Baby's Row Quilt. I thought I'd have it done today, but I ran out of some fabric I was using and couldn't get it in town. I have some (hopefully) similar fabric on order, so while waiting for it, I've been sewing as much as I can of the back, and I also made the crib skirt and pennants (my granddaughter calls them flags and announced the other day that she wanted flags like the ones in her room for her little brother--who am I to disappoint her?)

So here they all are:
"Melman" the giraffe--based on a pattern from Margaret Rolfe

Square-in-square blocks from the quilt back

Part of the crib skirt and pennants
Because of the placement of crib supports, the crib skirt is actually five pieces that will be tied onto the mattress support. (The ties won't show, but it's still fun to use nursery colors for them. There are nine "flags." The lighter orange one isn't sewn yet because it's a placeholder for the piece of fabric I'm waiting for, and then it will be moved to the end. 

I've also been making some Christmas ornaments while waiting for the mail. I'll save those for my Friday post. 

I'm linking up today with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday and with Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social.


  1. These will be beautiful additions to the nursery. I love how your granddaughter gave her own input.

  2. I love your giraffe! Looks like this baby is going to have a beautifully colourful nursery.

  3. What great colours! The giraffe is lovely.

  4. That giraffe block is so cute! Can't wait to see the big reveal on the completed nursery things! And your grand daughter will be so happy to have something made for her, too.

  5. How sweet and generous of your granddaughter that she wants something in her room for her little brother and not the other way around. That giraffe is just too cute!
