I have three grandchildren – all under the age of 2 1/2. Mikey, Maggie and Oscar. Mikey is ALL BOY – right now he thinks he is superman! Maggie is ALL GIRL – loved going to a dress-up tea party a few days ago. Here they are:
Of course, I have made them all baby quilts and a few matching diaper bags. I’ve learned a lot about what their Momma’s like. In this blog I’d like to show you Oscar’s quilts. They are the most recent so I have the pattern and fabric information on hand. The other kid’s quilts will be more of a mystery. I promise I will keep better track in the future! 🙂
So far, Oscar’s blue and white Double Irish Chain quilt (the most recent) is the favorite. Here’s another look:
I fashioned the quilt top using a book called The It’s OK If You Sit On My Quilt Book by Mary Ellen Hopkins.
I backed it with Minky fabric, which makes it very warm and super soft. It was difficult to machine quilt but well worth it. Here is Oscar sleeping on the back of the quilt. Looks comfy.
Oscar’s other quilt and matching bag were made from Under Construction fabric by Hoffman using the Turning Twenty pattern by Tricia Cribbs. I also made a matching bag with BOY appliqued on the front. This fun bag pattern is called “The Junk Bag” by Jackie Clark.
Have a great day!
