My latest project (along with many others…I can never seem to concentrate on one at a time), is a set of baby gifts for my sister in law. She is due in April. Her and her husband are both Dr’s. Her hubs has a bit of an obsession with reptiles. He’s done many research articles requiring lizards and all sorts of things to be living in their house. Those are now gone, but the reptile theme has been chosen for their baby boy as a result. She said they are focusing on dinosaurs, turtles, and lizards. Colors will be yellow, green, and blue (both navy and baby blue–though less emphasis on the baby blue since that is the color of their walls). Their furniture is white.
So, this is what I have chosen so far from Moda Deb Strain’s Meadow Friends line:
I’m trying to figure out what to mix in. For the rag quilt, I will need 2 more fabrics. I was thinking white minky as one to lighten it up a bit. Any thoughts on that and what the second fabric should be? There are quite a few more options in the meadow friends line, but I didn’t want it to be too crazy. Also, what color flannel do you guys think I should use for the back?
I figured the usual suspects of quilt, bibs and burps. Any ideas for something else to add in? Since its family, I want it to be a nice set.
Thanks! and I’ve missed you guys. 🙂
Here is a peek of 2 of my holiday projects. The stockings (that still need to be embroidered)…and you’ll notice the one in the middle (mine), the fabric is upside down. Gotta love stupid mistakes. Then, I did Jordan’s tutu and embellished reindeer shirt. 🙂
