Baby Life Quilt

My dear sweet SIL is having a baby this fall and I wanted to make her a quilt - because I never got to it for her first one! When we were last visiting with them I asked her what kind of quilt she wanted.

Because she is a fellow pinterest lover it did not take her too long to figure out what she wanted: the baby life quilt that has been all over pinterest.

I was excited to make this because I loved it and have wanted to make one for a while now and she gave me the opportunity!

She picked all of the colors and I used my cricut to cut out the words. I ironed them on with heat'n'bond, but I also sewed around them because some of my other projects that I used heat'n'bond did not really stand up well in multiple washes. And with this being a baby blanket I knew that it would get washed and washed and washed some more!
The yellow does not show up really well in pictures, but it looks great in person!
And here you can see my stellar sewing around the letters -
And here it is all wrapped up and ready to go. I have actually mailed this already and she got it and loved it! Which is super important!
Now I just hope that we get to make it out there in a couple of months and get to see her and her new little boy!

Enjoy!
Pin It! \
