School must be starting soon because I am feeling the need to make stuff. While out thrifting yesterday, I found this flannel and corduroy in perfectly matching colors. Probably somebody else's project extras and since this green is pretty much my favorite color I had to get them. I usually wait a few weeks to several years before I do anything with my fabric but I felt like these needed to be in a quilt and right away. I gathered the lace myself from a huge spool of double edged eyelet and put a needle punched cotton batting in the middle. Then I washed it and look how nice it turned out! I almost like the corduroy better than the printed flannel side.
I know the colors could have been boy or girl but the eyelet was crying out to be used. Now I need to find a recipient--sometimes I want to have another kid so that I can make more cool baby stuff and keep it but I am thinking that is not a good reason to have a baby. I feel certain that the months of barfing would make me rue the day I ever made a cute baby blanket. Not to mention the whole other person to take care of for the next forever!
