Little Oliver was born 10 days past his due date, and I have a feeling this quilt had something to do with it. I really wanted to finish the quilt before he was born…and he waited for me and then waited a little longer than I wanted. My advice for nesting-sewing is to get all your projects done months before you are due to give birth, crawling around on the floor with a big belly is rather uncomfortable. The front side of the quilt was based on a Denise Schmidt pattern from this book.
My Mom and I sewed this sweet bunting for the Moses basket while she was visiting in April. I love the Moses basket and I love my Mom for going along with these crazy projects.
