I decided to do my son's nursery in an alphabet/children's literature theme, so I made this quilt for him. It was my first ever completed start to finish quilt and I'm so beyond hooked now.



It was also my first time playing around with machine applique and I'll definitely have to do that again as well. In fact, I loved making this quilt so much that it's one of the very few projects I could actually see myself doing more than once.



I also made a matching bumper to go with it.




For pictures of the whole nursery, you can go to my blog post about it, here: http://reese-dixon.blogspot.com/2008/06/long-overdue-house-tour-day-three.html.

Thanks for looking!

What a great quilt - homey, but boy appropriate.  I took a peak at your blog, and the babies room is terrific. You have done a great job with it.

Too cute!  I love homemade baby "stuff" so much better than the generic premade ones.

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.
