Lord of the Rings Baby Quilt Round 2!

So, while things have been a bit sad for me for the past few months, I cannot ignore the happy fact that so many of my friends and family are pregnant/having babies! I posted a while ago how I was designing a LOTR alphabet quilt, mostly for my own amusement, but I knew a few of these soon-to-be-mothers would like it. I finally finished designing the fabric! I, sadly, do not quilt, despite the fact that I make a living sewing things, so I had a lovely woman actually quilt it for me and oh my god it’s so freaking cute I can’t even


I picked out 3 colors for the border that closely matched the squares, a light blue, green, and purple. I sent the fabric I designed and these fabrics to the woman who quilted it, with no instructions, I was just like “You know how to quilt, you do whatever you think is best” and IT’S SO CUTE. I love the border, it’s something I would have never thought to do!

The back is just a light teal and white fabric




So far I’ve had 2 of these quilts made by the same woman. I originally designed it for one of my best friends growing up, who was also one of my bridesmaids. Her baby was due on my birthday, July 27th, and I had planned to go down to Texas and see her, among other friends and family, on July 24th, but her baby came before I even flew down, so I got to meet him!


Yay! I’ve also ordered my design on a minky fabric, which is crazy soft. I then backed it with other minky from Joanns and made a little soft baby blanket. Admittedly, it’s not as cool as the quilted version, but I just don’t know how to quilt (yet!) I now have it for sale on my shop.

Next up, I’m almost done designing a Harry Potter alphabet quilt in the same style! Ah, babies.
