[that title has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of this post.]
A few weeks ago my lovely friend Meg had a beautiful baby girl :) Little Amelia is absolutely precious. And she needed an equally as adorable birthday present. Cue the chevron!
This was my first official attempt at piecing a quilt. It took a while to cut all the triangles and then decide how I wanted the stripes to go, but it was really pretty fast once I got started. I love how it turned out!! [sorry the colors are funky... phone-camera plus night-time equal bad news.]
Here's a closer view with one of the embroidered hearts. I didn't want to really "quilt" the blanket because there's not any batting between the layers so I embroidered hearts like this all over the blanket to keep everything lined up.
I love the way this blanket turned out!! I almost didn't even want to send it to Millie!! I wanted to keep it for myself :)
But I sent it off to Chicago to snuggle that little sweet pea since I can't do it myself. [what am I gonna do with a baby blanket, anyway?!]
