Hey everyone! So for this sew-n-tell I am going to show you some baby blocks that I made for my friends Miranda and JJ who recently had a baby boy named Cyrus! He is the cutest thing and I can't wait to have time to deliver the blocks personally and see him again! Here are the blocks.
On the back I embroydered a little saying that she had up on her facebook it reads: We Love you to the moon and back" i thought it was cute so i put it on the back of the blocks. They came out a little larger then i thought but that is okay they are very squishy and fin and i hope he will love them. I used fabric from the blanket i made for him before he was born and i added some owl print to it becasue they want the theme of his room to be owls. So she has already seen the pictures and she loves them i just need to get them over to her.
Also i got my quilt backing done from the last sew-n-tell and although many of you said to machine quilt i really want to hand quilt it. I finally picked out some teal thread that matches the teal in the backing fabric and the binding fabric and i think im going to quilt around the outside of each block on the sashing. Im really heasitating starting becasue i just really dont know what to do like where to stich. Its my first quilt so any help and ideas is very welcome!
Here are the pictures i put on my last post about it

Well I hope you like it!
