Creative Hour: Baby Quilts

With next week's Your Best Birth event quickly arriving, my Creative Hours this week have definitely been devoted to stitching up items for my soon-to-be-opened online store: Hillberry Baby.

First on the list are these baby quilts that I've completely fallen in love with. I created the design for them this past winter when I was busy "nesting." And since then I've been trying it out in all different types of fabrics and textures.

Although it is nearly impossible for me to pick a favorite, I have to say that the fuzzy sections on the cream & ivory quilts are calling my name. They were taken directly from a sweater I loved the idea of but never actually wore (you know the type...).

I do also really like how these pinstripe boys' quilts turned out. They are a traditional blue, admittedly, but I think the pattern and stripes make them less generic. Plus, they are repurposed from the dress shirts that used to hang in my husband's closet (and he thought they were going to Goodwill. Hah!).

I have a few more still to assemble, plus bibs, boppy covers and maybe a crib bumper or two. Needless to say, the sewing machine is calling my name!

Hope you all are enjoying your own creativity this week!
