Yellow and Green, Bento Box Variation for Baby

I finished the commissioned quilt last night and just finished the indoor photo shoot because it is raining. Too bad the world series can’t move inside! There is a lot of excitement in Philly is about the possible rain cancellation today. Anyway, the quilt->


What is that white ribbon doing in the middle two squares?  I ran so disastrously low on that bird fabric that the ribbon fudged me the extra inch I needed. I should have added some more on the border  to make it look a little more involved, such is the problem with 20/20 hindsight.


I love the minke on the back. I should say I love the minke now that I learned how to use it. I used some Heat -n- Bond lite to baste the minke to the batting. I made a disaster of a couple other projects with minke because it has a terrible tendency to stretch and bunch and this eliminated the problem completely. I had some early moments of anxiety because it felt like there was a sheet of crinkly newspaper in the quilt before I washed it. But a hot wash and a tumble in the dryer has it feeling like a soft cozy quilt.

Lovies? Is that what moms call them?

In an attempt to create a variety of items and prices for my farmers market debut I tried some of these little things. I tried to call them binkies but learned that is actually a pacifier, and blankies are bigger, but some searching on etsy leads me to think they are lovies, feedback anyone?

Ingredients: Minke on back, satin quilt binding when I had some that matched and some very small sacrifices on some of my favorite fabrics.
