Baby on the Way

No, it's not my baby. Yesterday, we had a baby shower for my niece who is due in a little over a month. One of my tasks was to prepare name tags for the guests. I made them out of construction paper and little muslin diapers. At the end of the shower, the guest who had the "dirty" diaper won a door prize. I used stone-ground, brown mustard which was a bit too realistic. Yuk!
And of course, my gift was a baby quilt (Yellow Brick Road by Terri Atkinson) that I finished binding on Saturday. There's nothing like a deadline to get me moving! I really like how the combination of homespuns and polka dots turned out. I used a cotton batt and didn't prewash anything. When I rinsed and dried the quilt, it got all old-fashioned crinkly and was so soft.
Between organizing and taking Bosca to the vet, that binding has been the extent of my sewing for at least a week. I'm getting antsy, but I really don't think I'll be able to relax and enjoy sewing until my basement organizing is done. I'm off to the laundry room. See 'ya later!

Love the plaids and polka dots! So sweet. :)

The YBR is such a great pattern for something quick, isn't it?
