1 down 4 to go

I have 5 baby quilts on my "Sewing To Do List" right now. 1 down and 4 to go!

All wrapped up and ready to be delivered. {for those newer to my blog, i make a lot of cupcakes and bought these really cool boxes for them. I often use the boxes to package my quilts in. The Co. only sells bulk at this time. You can find them HERE}


I went crazy with the quilting. Lots of swirls and free form flowers. But I like the end effect when it's been washed, dried and all crinkly.


Lavender/Purple is not my color. I had to go raid my friend Sheri's stash because I own zero purple fabric. {thank you Sheri} But... I really like how it turned out.

What a beautiful quilt and adorable idea for packaging. I might have to use that someday.

I'm not a purple fan either - but I love how it turned out.

I love the packaging! But even more, I adore the feel of a freshly washed and crinkly quilt. Pure heaven!

Jodi...it's adorable.
Quilt in a box. I love it.
I love bakery boxes too.
The bakery down the road from me will sell me any box or container that I want...or any quantity.
Such a great idea!

I love the packaging! I often get sad when I give a handmade, creative gift and my wrapping leaves much to be desired.

VickiT said...

Beautifully done and I love that you use bakery boxes. That really makes it so cute looking and much easier to wrap too I bet. I LOVE purple and think this quilt is just awesome.
