Crazy for bibs

I've been wrapping up all my baby projects and finished all these bibs and some burp cloths.

Quilt no. 3

This quilt was inspired by a pattern (Flock of Triangles) in the Denyse Schmidt Quilts book.  I started this baby quilt last summer and modified the scale of the triangles to make it smaller for a baby quilt. I just didn't know I would need a finished baby quilt so soon.

For now, my husband has claimed this quilt as he's own, but we'll see if he can share with the baby later.

There is a quilt no. 2, but it's still not finished yet.  I started hand quilting it, so who knows when I will actually finish that quilt.

My first quilt

I actually started this years ago, but FINALLY put it together and finished it.  Due to my fabric choices turning out baby-ish for this first quilt, I thought it would be appropriate for our baby instead of the throw blanket I had originally imagined.

More baby knits

Little man cowl sweater with leather buttons.  Little black bump at the bottom is baby.
I couldn't resist.  My husband has the exact same sweater!

I love this coat!
I've made this twice now and it's knit up beautifully both times.  Unfortunately the buttons ended up costing more then the yarn... but I think it dresses up the coat perfectly. :)

Both patterns are super easy and knits up very quickly.
