Project Nursery: Flannel rag baby quilt

This was such a fun project. Fun and time consuming. Luckily I have a limitless amount of time to work on my sewing! I decided to make this sweet little quilt as soon as I saw it on Pinterest and quickly followed the link to a fairly easy tutorial on Do it yourself divas. It was a lot of fun picking out the fabric, especially because Jo-Anne's had just gotten a new shipment of flannel in! I have found that Im naturally more drawn to more vibrant colors for the baby's room so the fabrics I chose for the quilt coordinate pretty well with the fabric I used for the flags.

It took a very long time to cut out each strip of fabric and batting but the sewing itself went fairly quickly!

It was fun laying out each pattern and deciding what I wanted the quilt to look like

And after several days of sewing and trimming and binding (shudder) its finished!

  1. Cute! Look at you sewing your own baby quilt. And binding even?? I am way too scared to try that. Way to go!
