Sew Cherry & Project Nursery

Sew Cherry from Riley Blake Designs is here!

In Red and Pink

Green and Yellow

and Blue and Brown
 Are they not perfect for summer?
I am thinking picnic quilt!

We also just "Picked-Up" these cute prints from Robert Kaufman Fabrics.
(I am so witty)


Sew Cute!

********

As I mentioned before......We are going to be adding another little girl to our family this summer!
I can't wait.
I have already finished the nursery and occasionally I find myself sitting in there just soaking it up.
I want to share with you a few projects I have been working on for the room,

So, without further adieu....

Project Nursery

Perhaps you remember my first nursery project that I showed you a month ago.
I didn't create a tutorial for the bumper pad, but here are few links for great tutorials that I followed:
I was terrified to create my own tutorial for it.  Maybe next time ;)

 For the quilt though, I did take some pictures along the way and here is what I did!
 1- I cut out 48 5"x5" squares out of some of favorite prints from the shop.
2-Then I cut some 5"x1.5" white strips to sew in between each square.

 3. I sewed all 8 rows, and then added a longer (however wide the quilt is) 1.5" white strip in between in each row. And a strip running down each side.
 If I knew how to quilt on my own sewing machine, that would be awesome.
But I don't, so I sent it away to the quilters!
I backed it with Amy Butler's Full Moon Polka Dot in Lime.
I just LOVE how it turned out!
I just might wrap myself up in it. (Darn, I should have made it bigger)

Over the next few weeks I will post the other projects and mini tutorials for them. 
So stay tuned for more from...
PROJECT NURSERY!

I love the look of Sew Cherry! Can you tell me about the cherries on white- is the white a bright clear white or a vanilla/off-white tone?
Thanks.

Love your fabrics. I just placed my 1st order this past week-end and now I have found your blog and love your post. Your nursey bummper pads are so cute. You did a great job. I wanted to sew bumper pads for my grandbabys nursey but was scared to attempt it.

I am extremely inspired with your writing abilities as smartly with the format for your blog. Is that this a paid subject or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice high quality writing, it’s uncommon to see a great weblog like this one today.
