My little sister, Sarah, is pregnant with her first baby -- a boy -- due in late May. It did not break my heart when she couldn't find a bedding set she loved and asked me if I'd make a quilt, crib skirt and window valances for his nursery. I told her to find some fabric she liked and wanted me to use.
She found this crib sheet and said she loved the circles and the colors, but not the elephants. She wants this, but with monkeys instead:
I bought a few of these sheets --- along with some other lime green, light blue and chocolate colored fabric --- and will start making her items soon.
In the meantime, her BFF (who is like a little sister to me) just had her 3rd baby (a boy) --- almost 5 weeks early. He's 6+ pounds and healthy but I hadn't started on his quilt yet. Turns out, he'll have elephants in his nursery. Well that worked out well, don't you think?
I started by very carefully cutting the elephant part off the sheets I'd bought for my sister:
And came up with this, which went together in no time at all. I think I'll add a brown border around the outside, then this will be ready to sandwich and quilt.
The blue, green and brown for this one came from my stash and I found a way to put those cute little elephants to good use. I love it when that happens!
I've got one other project to finish up before I start quilting this one, and I hope to have the other one ready to share later in the week.
