Baby Shower Advent Calendar

My friend is having a baby girl in December. At her baby shower, I made a baby sock advent calendar. We put little notes in each stocking for the new mommy to open each day of December leading up until Christmas. Then she can keep the sock calendar and use it the next year for her children.

30’s Inspired Baby Quilt

My friend is having a baby girl – she picked out the fabrics and I sewed the quilt. It turned out so cute!! And I love the simple design.
I love the back – it is as cute as the front.

Christmas Quilts

I am updating this post several years later….I have had several pattern requests  for this “Be Merry” quilt.  I made this quilt before I began blogging and posting tutorials.  I have done some measuring and figuring and here are some of the measurements – I think you can take it from there 🙂  Again, I apologize!!

The quilt measures 42″ x 35.5″ finished – so a nice wall size.
The blocks are cut 6″
The scrappy strips are cut 2″ and pieced together randomly in all different lengths.
The white sashing is also cut 2″
There are plain 6″ white blocks where the trees go and then a white rectangle block where the words “Be Merry” go.  The font is called Candy Randy.  I hope this is helpful!!
