|Dear. Lord. Lol|
When Jenn started TBT, she encouraged us to share the good, the bad, and the ugly. This quilt, for the most part, falls into the latter 2 categories I feel like. Despite that, I still smile when I think about this quilt. Mr. LBC and I got married last year (our 1 year anniversary was this past Sunday!) and for some reason, my newlywed brain thought it was a good idea to make all the kids in the family a quilt for Christmas...still not sure how that sounded like a good idea! Lol.
This little baby quilt was for my cousin's daughter who had just been born that summer. I...I know I said I liked busy baby quilts, but this one still burns my eyes a little bit where it's so bright and loud! LOL. When I made it though, I was so proud despite its mistakes. This was definitely a quilt only a baby could love. ;)
|Before blogging, this was my signature picture of every quilt I made for some reason. Lol. It shows off the binding issues quite nicely. Bahahaha|
This was full of firsts for me! First quilt I made after being married, first try at FMQ (oh, how terrified I was!) first time with applique. I'm still ridiculously proud of the name block with the little birds on it! It still had the usual issues (DARN BINDING TROUBLES!), so I was nervous to hand Layla's mom the bag for her to help her open it. I remember holding my breath as they pulled it out, everybody oohhhing and aaahhing. But I didn't breath until little Layla looked down at the quilt, let out a happy squeal and started smiling. When that happened, I finally finally took a breath of relief!
|That font and those birds! I think this is my favorite applique so far!|
|I legit thought about cropping my head out of this. Lol. But I look so happy, I want to share. :)|
