Bailey's Baby Clothes Quilt
I recently finished a baby clothes quilt for my friend Becki's daughter Bailey. Well, the quilt is made from Bailey's clothes but I think Becki is going to keep the quilt for herself! :)
Since Bailey's middle name is Violet I used a pretty violet print cotton for the borders and backing. I tried to use a part of every article of clothing that I had, and I did with the exception of one really think fleece jumpsuit.
I really wanted to get the bibs in so I just sewed them to a square! And I loved all the Wisconsin and hunting stuff so that had to be included. And those little Oshkosh overalls, so cute.
All in all, I was pretty satisfied with the quilt. Considering that my sewing machine DIED midway through this project and I had to finish on a borrowed machine. I have ordered a new part for my machine twice and it's still dead. I am holding out trying not to buy a new one, but it might be inevitable.
I used a couple of the outfits for a grandparents pillow back here.
