My grandnephew K's 9th birthday was a couple of days ago, so to celebrate, I've dug out a photo of the baby quilt I finished for him in late March 2006, just before he was born. As I recall, his nursery was decorated with bedding with a barnyard theme, and as I've done on other occasions, I went to the store with fabric swatches in hand to check out the bedding and figure out what might go with it.
Quilts I made for babies back then were very simple, and tied with perle cotton so that I could finish them quickly.
Do you notice the chopped off points on the edges? I'm not sure I'd tolerate that now, but I put a pretty hefty binding on by machine. We'll just say I meant to do that, okay?
I'm linking up today with My Quilt Infatuation for Needle and Thread Thursday. Have a great weekend everyone!
