We are continuing with our Wedding Themed challenges for the month of May. Today’s challenge is Something new - create a layout about something new (new baby, wedding, new home etc.) or use new supplies.

Sewn With Love

 Good morning everyone, I hope everyone is enjoying the winter weather! We got another snowfall overnight. I think we got between six and eight inches.

I have a special layout to share today.

I created this baby quilt for our newest grandchild! I just love this pattern. I made a quilt with the same fabric and pattern about ten years ago for a friend’s baby and just fell in love with it, so when my daughter told us she was expecting I knew what I wanted to make for the baby. My husband and I searched the world over and could not find any of the fabric. But low and behold two of my friends had some left over, so with what the three of us had, I was able to create this adorable quilt. That’s what friends are for!

Here is each page closer up….



I also had an older line of My Minds Eye paper and chipboard that matched the quilt perfect! I love it when a plan comes together!

I was inspired by the double page sketch from Stick It Down.
