Wouldn't you know I had Internet and photo loading issues with this post so now typing it up quickly on my iPad before the plane takes off!
Here's the baby boy stroller quilt made for this weekend's baby shower. The quilt was inspired by Jolene's star quilt but made smaller to accommodate the baby stroller/car seat size as suggested in this tutorial.
Here's the back. Ok. Maybe I'll edit this post once I land. I'm being told to turn off all electronic devices. Stay tuned for more details.
Edited now that I am off the plane and have wifi.....So, this is the first baby quilt that I have ever made! I have made one or two toddler quilts, but never one for a baby. Hopefully, the parents and the baby will love this one. The quilt is super soft. The backing is flannel from Children at Play. I'd have to go back to an earlier post to remember what fabrics I used for the front, but those are soft too. I used a green fabric for the binding and the ties. I am not sure about the safety issue with these ties. They are designed to hold the quilt in place on a stroller and car seat so the quilt doesn't slide off, but I worry about any strings near the baby. They can easily be cut off if the parents decide against the ties. I quilted straight lines with my walking foot on either side of the blocks and then again around each star.
I was able to link up with Amanda's finish it up Friday, but ran out of wifi on the plane before finishing the link at Amy's Sew and Tell Friday.
