paul’s baby clothes quilt {sewing projects}

I was digging through my folder of crafty project photos today and realized I never blogged the finished quilt I made for Paul from his old baby clothes. This has been finished for quite a while (almost a year now) but I just never got around to posting it. It’s essentially exactly the same as Amelia’s baby clothes quilt but made of Paul’s clothes (duh).

When I finished it he climbed all over it, inspecting it and pointing out all the squares he liked best. He also told me which of the clothes he remembers

He seems to love his just as much as his sister loves hers

Both of their quilts are made from the clothes they wore during their first year… I can’t believe it’s already almost time to make Edie a quilt (yikes!) time is certainly flying! If you happened to miss Amelia’s quilt post and are wondering how to make one of your very own go and check it out – there are tons of links/explanations on how I made it and all of the tutorials I used. Hooray for baby clothes quilts!

    KATY! You put me to shame! I have so many unfinished quilting projects, and no excuses (aka, I don’t have twins and a baby!)

    Hi Katy, I love these quilts. I am planning on doing the same for my daughter (inspired by you!). I was wondering if you could tell me what kind of lens you are using for the photos. I like the Bokeah. Is this shot in f2.8? Thank you,

      Hi Patricia. Thanks for the comment and good luck with your quilt! I can’t say for sure which lens these were taken with, I don’t remember off the top of my head. I have a lot of lenses (I’m a professional photographer) so it could have been any one of a few different ones – maybe either a 50 or 28mm lens? I’d probably say 50 if I were forced to pick… but yes, they were shot with at least f2.8, more likely 1.8 or so.
