Ready For Baby!

I'm finally ready for baby! I got his bedding set and his new quilt done. The boys room is ready to go. Hopefully he'll look like a Kyle so I don't have to re-do his pillow and unpick the name in his quilt! Crossing our fingers for a wonderful delivery! I'm off to enjoy my Babymoon!
Ryan's new toddler bed. He's using his same blanket and bedding from his baby bed. His quilt was a Triple Irish Chain totally out of minky and then I embroidered some sports theme in the blanket space.
Kyle's Bed.
I decided to make him a Trip Around the World blanket (pattern from Quilt In a Day), but do it all in minky fabric. The pattern is simple but doing it with all minky fabric and a silky edge binding is very tricky! It's tough to line up all the squares with fabric that is so stretchy. I think it turned out really good. I love the fun, totally original minky fabrics I was able to find to do this. I just did some simple quilting, stitch in the ditch, on several rows. It should stand the wear and tear of a little boy!


  1. I LOVE it!!! Looks so adorable. I love that pattern, I made the same one for Kaylynn. So cute, can't wait for him to get here already :)

  2. I love the colors and pattern as well. I am going with a dark brown and blue theme as well. My helped my mom pick out colors for a quilt she made me and is bringing this week. Can't wait to see it. I think one side is minky, then I have fabric in dark browns and blues (more softer blues) as well with circle patterns. My mom was also making me a cover for my car seat. Can't wait to see it all and especially our baby boys when they are born. So cool that they might be born on the same day!


Thanks for your comment! I love hearing from you!
