I thought about this quilt for a long time. I knew that I wanted to do something with bicycles, and had my eye on the perfect fabrics. Since Kirsten wasn’t finding out the sex of the baby, I had to make it as gender neutral as possible. To be sure that I was meeting the call, I showed Brett my plan, and once I got his okay, I knew it was going to be alright.
It took me forever to figure out what pattern I wanted to use….I have the hardest time deciding between all of the neat quilts that I’ve pinned. I decided to use this as inspiration. Once I figured out the dimensions for everything, I was out to actually get the fabric. Thankful to an idea from my friends at the SBMQG I was able to find an etsy seller who was willing to cut me 6×6 inch squares of the ones I needed. All of the fabric is Jay-Cyn Designs for Birch Fabrics.
I really like the way the quilting came together. I used masking tape to lay out the lines (which Brett helped) and quilted on either side of the edges.
One of my favorite things is the rolled up quilt. :)
Kristi, Amber and I hosted a baby shower for Kirsten and it was so lovely. Such a great group of women to fellowship, pray for, and celebrate Baby Moore.
Kirsten loved the quilt!
