A dear friend of mine is due very soon and I’m so excited for her! I love to make baby gifts and decided to make a few for her baby boy. She loves penguins and polar bears and so I pulled together a collection of modern fabrics for her to choose from. You can read that round up post here.
One of her favorites was the middle left one. I used that fabric as the main fabric for a baby blanket for her baby boy. And now that she has received it I can show it to you all without spoiling the surprise!
I selected coordinating fabrics focusing mainly on pulling out the blue and black from the penguin fabric. Once I had picked out the coordinating fabrics I sketched out a few plans to figure out what I wanted the quilt to look like.
I made a bib and a few burp cloths to coordinate with the baby quilt. I forgot to snap a picture of the burp cloths but I made one from the penguin fabric, one from the blue chevron, and one from the black and white criss cross lines.
Do have a favorite gift you like to give for new babies?
