Monday's Quilt (barely)
The youngest of the babes (I won't call her the smallest, because her big sister only has her by 26 months and 4 pounds) is getting to the point where she isn't quite mobile but she's not quite immoblile either. The baby blankets she had been hanging out on are no longer cutting it. I realized that I didn't really have anything appropriate for her to have her tummy time on the floor so I got to work making something super quick and easy that would, just basically, get the job done. I can call it a quilt technically, because of the fact that it meets the definition but any quilt maker would surely cringe.
I cut 2 different fabrics into really big strips and sewed them together then sewed on a border to create the top. Then I quilted on the filler and backing. For the backing I used an old bed sheet I had collected in my travels. I used the excess from the top to fold over and act as the binding.
It may not be pretty but it does the job and that's the point isn't it?
