I finished Baby Adrian's Quilt! Remember this post?
I was able to take Little Adrian his quilt when we went up to Provo for his baby blessing, two Sundays ago. Here he is on it:
Isn't he a doll? The quilt came out pretty good, too. Here is how I did it.
As I told you I would do, I sandwiched the batting between the top and the bottom and macine quilted it in channels. I think you can see that in the above photo, but her is another picture.
Then, I folded the strips in half and folded under the edges to finish them. Put your iron to good use.
This is a photo of the finished quilt. Don't look too closely at the crooked lines, but I don't think it is too bad, do you?
Next, I cut strips of my edging fabric. I cut the strips 3 inches wide because I wanted some of the cute ABC animal print to show.
I started by pinning the strip onto the back of the quilt.
Then I stitched the strip on with a straight stitch.
Next, fold the strip to the front, folding under the ends to finish them. Here are some photos to show the process.

I was really happy with the end results! I have enough of the edging fabric left over to make a lighter weight blanket for my other little cutie. We live in Phoenix, so I think a light blanket will be just the thing to keep the air conditioner from gettin him cold. I will be posting about that soon. In the meantime, enjoy a few more pictures of my cuties!
