Baby season....

I have reached the point in my life where babies are being born, it seems by the dozens right now. I have been busy trying to whip out as many cute little goodies for my friends. Here are a few things that I was able to get finished up...

I love the way this little quilt turned out. It's a whole fabric quilt. The numbered fabric is from Ikea and I quilted all around each number. It took longer than I had expected but there was no piecing so it was still fairly a quick quilt start to finish.

Here is a close up of all the quilting.

Here is a small zigzag quilt with some fun car fabric for my friends little boy. I used the same technique as my quilt along zig zag quilt, half sqaure triangles. They are quick and super easy. I quilted along either side of the zigzag seams. It make a cool pattern on the back but unfortunately don't have pictures of that to show :(

Ok well I must confess this next one I didn't do, but I learned how to make one. My aunt in Ecuador created these cute overalls along with all sorts of other cute knitted and crochet things. She makes up the patterns all on her own and I was lucky enough to get some private lessons during one day of my trip. I haven't had the chance to put my new found knowledge to work yet, but since winter is right around the corner and knitting is my winter "sport", this is going to be the first project I tackle.

Here is my last baby inspired project. It follows another one of my quilt along techniques and patterns, Charming Minky. I needed this one really quick so it was started and finished in two days. I think that is a record for me :)

I do love making baby projects in general. They are fun quick projects that always look absolutely adorable on the baby it was intended for. I have just ordered a cute hat pattern from Adrienne Kinsella and some baby shoe patterns from Sweet Pea Patterns. I'll be having more baby fun in the upcoming weeks.

Have you been baby crazed as well?
Take care mucho,
