Striped Baby Quilt

Happy Monday! How was your weekend?  Nate was home on both Saturday and Sunday.  It was strange and awesome.  We both got a lot of stuff done.  Nothing blogworthy but things that made us both feel better.  The house is spotless.  The garage is clean.  The dog is clean.  We took a couple of long walks and we all slept a lot.  Especially this guy.


Tax season was hard on him.  As is his new big brother role.  He's being very supportive by joining me for afternoon naps.

I did finish up a couple of craft projects.  The first is a quilt for a co-worker.  I wanted to name this the Prozac quilt because my co-worker told me she liked the colors of a generic Prozac capsule.  I figured striped baby quilt might do better with the ol' SEO.

The quilt is pretty basic but I love how it turned out.  Minus the binding. I tried a new machine binding technique and it didn't work out well for me.  I had to go back and fix a few spots after washing it.  I'll go back to my old way for my next quilt. It was probably user error and not the binding technique itself.

This quilt whips up quickly.  The top is just strips of fabric pieced together.  Stick a piece of batting in the middle and place that on top of your backing fabric.  "Quilt" along the stripe edges.  I only did the white but the grey would like nice as well.  Once that's done, bind.  I think this quilt took me 3-4 hours.  (This is similar in time frame to the cheater quilt I posed a couple of weeks ago.)

Now to start on my own baby quilts!
