plaid quilt, blanket, and baby boy gifts (and a giveaway!)

plaid quilt, blanket, and baby toy gifts

It’s been awhile since I threw my sister her shower, but I lost these pics and just recently located them hidden in some random folder.

Ha! So here you go-here’s the stuff I made for my seester’s baby! (well, really her.)

(and squeee I am visiting her and baby Benson right now!)

The colors she chose for the nursery were orange, grey, and navy.

I had pinned this quilt awhile ago and straight up copied it, I loved it so much.

Super simple patchwork squares, in a gingham pattern.

The fabrics for the front are all from The Ribbon Retreat Bella Solids-the binding is Amelia Apricot, and the squares are Porcelain, Slate, and Zen Grey.

you can see the backing a little in the next pic-I took really shoddy pics of this quilt-sorry!

the backing is from my local quilt shop, The Nimble Thimble, and it’s a grey crosshatch by Robert Kaufman.

I walked into the shop thinking “wow it’d really be great if they had a light grey crosshatch fabric” and no joke, a bolt of this was sitting 4 steps from the door, calling to me!

It was fabric karma!

try to ignore my wonky stitching in the ditch.

better here…

I also made a quick blanket for her using my pretty easy blanket tutorial.

I found out later that minky blankets are highly prized in her husbands family, so I’ll just high five myself right now.


the plaid is also from the Ribbon Retreat, but not available anymore it looks like…from the Vintage Verona line.

the orange minky is from this shop-the owner was sweet enough to let me know that the orange was a nice deep orange, not a TRAFFIC CONE IN YOUR FACE orange.

She was right loL! it is a nice pumpkin orange!
