Goo-Goo, Ga-Ga (part one)

My friends are baby making machines.

It seems like everything I have made the last few months has been tailored for the newly born.

Good thing I like making wares for the wee.

Things like this, this, this, this, and this.

Here are a couple more quilts to add to the collection:

This one is for that little dumplin' who was promised a blanket without team mascots.

I wanted to make a pieced blanket that was girly, but not too girly. This one has lots of pink, but still has my touch with the orange and brown.

Initially I was going to use the more traditional quilting cotton. But then opted for cotton flannel. It will be soft and only get softer as it ages.

I didn't add batting or even flannel to the middle. It's a top and a bottom quilted together. Now it can be used year round.

A satin border was added. It lent a bit of shine and upped that girly factor I was shooting for.

Next up: a blanket for another of The Mr.'s band mates.

I really like the modern simplicity of this one. I wasn't sure about adding the grey, but really like the way it turned out.

Like the previous blanket, it's made from cotton flannel without the extra layer in the middle. Houston summers...and springs and falls are brutal. We don't need heavy blankets in these parts.

Stay tuned until tomorrow for the conclusion of the Goo-Goo, Ga-Ga Collection...
