Applique Onesies

Continuing on with the gifts for K&M’s baby girl, I appliqued some onesies.  The fabric is from Fabricworm and is called Chick Chick by Mod Green Pod.  K has been very involved in poultry research, so I wanted to incorporate some chickens into the gifts.  I hand sewed the fabric onto the onesies, and I think they turned out really well.  They also have the pink and green that will be in the nursery.



K&M Quilt

My good friends K&M are having their first child, and I am so excited for them.  They know it’s going to be a girl and I already got the nursery colour details from K (pale purple, pink, green, and yellow), so I got started on their quilt.

For the quilt top, I found a great FQ pack from Fabricworm by Jessica Swift, called Preeti in pink.  I also purchased the custom bundle Boardwalk, and used Robert Kaufman Kona cotton jelly roll in white.   Jessica Swift’s Peacock Feathers in Taupe is the backing (K loves peacock feathers), and Michael Miller Dumb Dot in Charcoal is the binding.

The pattern comes from the Quilting Quickly II class on Craftsy.  It recommends using all jelly rolls and then you can get 6 small squares from each 6 strips, but because I had FQ, I could only get 2 small squares from the shorter 6 strips I cut.  It made it a bit more tedious, but I really liked the fabric I used.

This is probably the most complicated quilt I’ve done so far, since there were many seams to match up, but I think it turned out great.  I can’t wait to meet K&M’s little one and see her with this quilt.

I’ll be sharing another project I did for K&M later.
