Cakes! Onesie and Burp Cloth

I made this little onesie and burp cloth set for a couple in my office having a girl. It was fun to indulge in the pinkest of pinks. I don’t think they’re really pink people, but I had to get it out of my system somehow.

We’re back to the gray days, but it has warmed up a little. At least there hasn’t been snow on the rooftops when I wake up in the morning. This little one I’m growing is not so little any more. I keep thinking that my belly can’t get any bigger, but it does! Growing and growing and growing.

I made the first square for the baby quilt, but now I’m reconsidering my pattern choice. I had planned on making a quilt very similar to this, but am now reconsidering because of how little of the print shows. And maybe it’s a little too sophisticated. Now I’m thinking about a similar pattern by the same quilter, which would show off the fabric more but does look really complex. Or, maybe something more freestyle like the beach blanket I made last year. Any thoughts?

    I love the freestyle beach blanket! I love non- patterned quilts like that. That gets my vote!

    So cute! Before I read your post, I looked at the pic and was like “she knows she having a boy right??” Ha ha…boys can have cakes too of course!

    I love that beach blanket that you made! How did you do that?

    Hey, do you have a pattern for that beach blanket? That actually looks like something I could do! (Read: have patience for).

    Cuteness! Isn’t it so fun making pink ridiculously girlie clothes? If ever you need to get out any more pinkness, Maddie would love some of your adorable clothes! Ok, here’s my vote: you bought the CUTEST fabric ever, I say you show it off more. I love the quilt you originally set off to make, but I’m in agreement with you that you need to showcase the fabric a bit more. Do you like this zigzag quilt at all?
    Can’t wait to see what you come up with! I know it will be spectacular!
