Crib Quilt: Baby Boy Style

Wow, I didn’t realize how long it had been since I last posted.  I was kind of on a roll with the maternity wardrobe, though, so it’s good to have a bit of a breather after completing that.

Speaking of which, I didn’t win Pattern Review’s Wardrobe Contest (Nor was I expecting to.  Haha.  Expecting.  See what I did there?) but am so glad I joined in:  8 more pieces of clothing to my tiny maternity wardrobe is quite the boost, and I’ve been wearing almost all of them regularly!   Also, my buddy, the lovely sewing Energizer Bunny Nakisha, got second place!  Woohoo!  Awesomesauce.

Anywho, eyes on the prize.  I finally finished my little guy’s quilt, and on the day of my baby shower!

So, What’s Next?

For my little guy:

1.  Finish crib quilt.  Here’s the progress I’ve made as of this post.

Here are the outfits I’m able to make with these 9 pieces (please excuse my cankles; they suck):

The Phoenix Skirt

It’s an understatement to say that I was less than enthused with how my over-the-bump dirndl skirt turned out.  As such, I sent it to Valhalla this weekend and this quite simple, but delightfully wearable, phoenix rose from the ashes:

Simplicity 1359And no, I don’t give a crap that I’m mixing Norse and Greek mythology.  I do what I want!

I’ve finished two more pieces of my wardrobe!  I have mixed feelings about this outfit as a whole, but I’ll get to that in a minute.  Here they are:  Butterick 5796 (view A) top, and Burda 7023 skirt.
