Quilts and Afghans

Here are a couple of projects that I’ve finished off in the last couple of days. The first is a sweet little baby quilt that I’ve made for my nephew who will be born a few months from now.

I’d made this quilt for my granddaughter several years ago so here it is with a pink border. Baby Girl Quilt

When I’d made the quilt I had enough leftover fabric that I’d sewn another top together but left off the outside border waiting for another baby to come along before deciding which colour border to use. I didn’t have any matching backing fabric so I decided to dye my own. The dye I used was appropriately named baby boy blue.

The next project that I’ve finished this week is another lap Afghan made for my father. This afghan was made from from my hoard of Lion Brand Homespun Thick and Quick that I stocked up on when I found out it was $4 a ball at the local dollarama. I stayed with the same wave pattern as I’ve pretty much got it memorized by now.

I hope everyone is staying safe and doing well, take care.
