Time to reveal the sneak peak quilt! Landon Ryan was born last night! Of course, we headed to the hospital to hold him and give him his Tummy Time quilt and Lil’ Lovee.
He is so adorable and even though I guessed girl, we couldn’t be happier for our niece and her hubby!
I love string quilts and scrappy quilts, therefore, this is one of my favorites! In fact, I’ve already started another one. With my big extended family, I’m sure I’ll need it soon!
This is the first time I’ve used Minkee for the backing fabric on a Tummy Time quilt. I like it! It’s super soft and shows off the quilting design.
Landon’s big brother is Jordy, who has a few of my quilted projects! Here’s Jordy with his Tummy Time quilt.
I’m linking with Such a Sew and Sew: A Stitch in Time for an August finish. Check out other finishes here. And a big thank you to Mr. Bug for drawing me to win last month! 🙂 Linda
With all the babies being born in my family this year, I’m trying new ideas for baby gifts. This is my latest creation called Lil’ Lovee by Linda.
I combined leftover Minkee and flannel scraps. The finished size is about 13″, but you can make it any size depending on your remnants. I used 2 flannels to make an uneven 4 patch block. Any block would work, I wanted fewer seams to keep it soft and cuddly. If I was more ambitious, I might have personalized the Lil’ Lovee, maybe next time!
It’s a sweet, cheek cuddler when they’re little babies and a dolly blanket when they’re older. It’s sooooo soft.
Like the dish mats, I left the 4 patch seam open for turning and then top- stitched around the seams, closing the opening. Fast and easy!
This one was sent to Kailani, who is enjoying her Tummy Time quilt, too!
Isn’t she adorable?!
Thanks for looking! 🙂 Linda
