Lizzy’s Shower Gift | DIY Crib Quilt

Categories Adventures, DIY

I mentioned in a post a couple weeks ago that I was working on a special gift for Lizzy for her baby shower. I worked with her a bit on the colors and such and gathered up all the perfect materials and got to work sewing and ironing and cuddling comfy fabrics. After finishing the quilt, I realized I had some extra fabric that would be perfect for a pillow. Then I found a lace doily cloth thing at Goodwill and decided I had to create a lace-overlay pillow as well. So here are some photos of the process and several of the finished product. I am so in love with the variety of textures and how it all looks together… folded, stacked and in pretty much displayed in every which way.

All the pieces cut into their pretty squares:

The pillows I made to accompany the quilt:


I'm the daughter to a King, wife to a man who makes me laugh, and mother to two boys who add joy and fullness to my life. I am a dreamer, a philosopher, an artist, and lover of things that stir my soul. I spend most of my days at home with my boys, Miles and Finn. We make messes (and occasionally clean them up), we giggle, we run and hide from dinosaurs and monsters and we read lots of books together. In my "free" time I feed my craving for art with various creative pursuits and indulge in tasty treats, coffee, and the occasional, guilt-laden Red Bull to feed my other addictions.

When it comes to my passions, I have many. God, Love, Family, Travel, Music, Design, Coffee... but somewhere near the top of the list you'll find photography. From the moment I turned my camera lens towards a sunset for the first time, I felt an intense desire to somehow steal away the beauty of that moment and keep it forever. Now I walk around thirsty to soak up the beautiful moments around me, add a spark of something from deep inside my soul, then spill it back out to the world.
