A few weeks ago, a good friend of mine who is having a baby asked if I would help her plan out her nursery. Of course I jumped at the chance, I love decorating and decorating for a baby makes it even more fun. When we got together, we brainstormed ideas and finally landed on going with a coral, mint, and grey theme with white and gold mixed in. I love all of these colors together and cannot wait to see it come together. She also asked me if I would make the crib bedding and drapes for the room. Now, I have never done that type of work before, but I was so excited to try something new and learn a new skill. I’ve wanted to get into quilting for a while and making a baby quilt seemed like the perfect place to start.
I have never made a quilt like this before and I’m not going to lie, there were a few times I thought I was completely ruining it and was worried I’d signed up for more than I bargained for (Ash, if you are reading this, everything went smoothly and perfectly and there were absolutely no worries). Anyway, I pushed through those moments of absolute desperation and am so happy I did. When it was all finished, I loved how it came together.
To say this project was time consuming is an understatement. It took me a long time to complete, especially when I could only work on it in short bursts while Brynlee was sleeping and I didn’t have a pattern or anything to follow, just and idea in my head. But I learned a lot and think that the next time I make a quilt like this it will go a lot quicker and in the end I think it was so worth the time and effort. I’m so happy with it and think it will perfectly complement the other ideas we have for this room. I hope my friend and her baby will love it as much as I do.
