I had an order for a rocket blanket a couple weeks ago, so I bought extra fabric. This fabric is so cute! And I love that it has both girls and boys in space costumes so it can be for either gender. Anyway, with some of the extra fabric I made this quilt over the past few days.
I just love how it turned out! The corners all actually met up, which is something I struggle with. I am no master quilter by any means!! But each one comes out a little better than the last.
Ingrid and I went to the fabric store yesterday armed with our 40% off coupons and an idea of getting something to back the quilt. First thing I saw was chocolate brown minky dot fabric, which they never have in stock! And it was on sale! I died. And then bought two yards of it. However, I had ideas of a prequilted fabric for the back and was pleased to find a nice chocolate color in that.
So now I just have to send this off to the friend for whom it was intended, which is no easy task. Even though I know I can whip one of these up for myself any old time I want to, I really love how this one turned out and it's going to be hard to pack it up and ship it away! How selfish is that??? But I know my friend will love it, and her baby will get lots of use out of it. And that's what's important, right?
