A couple of weekend’s ago I jointly hosted a baby shower for my Sister-in-law, Natasha. Despite the guest of honour not feeling particularly great on the day, I think everything went pretty well – thanks to beautiful weather and a lot of hard work on the part of my fellow host-ee, Jordan. (Honestly check out pretty much all the decorations, cupcakes and chocolate moustaches below – that was all Jordan!)
Tash is having a little boy so the theme was ‘lil’ man’ – hence the moustache overload (conveniently though the date of the party conveniently fell in Mo-vember!)
Co-incidently, and as fate would have it I stumbled upon an unused packet of moustache (‘munchstache’) cookie cutters at the op shop about a week before the party and I also got pretty excited by the fact that I finally had a reason to attempt the famous Paisley Jade Moustache Cake! Yuss!
So you’re wondering about the quilt pictured above? Well it feels like a while that I’ve had a chance to sew baby boy things, so I decided to make Natasha and Toby’s wee boy a cot quilt. I followed this easy cross quilt tutorial/ template from For the Love of George. It came together pretty quickly and although I bought a couple of fat quarters from By the Yard especially for this project, I also managed to use up a couple of scraps from other projects such as Pipi's hexi quilt and her sleep sack. There really is something quite satisfying about using up scraps isn’t there? (And I like that this little boy will have a bit of fabric that is also in his cousin’s quilt too!)
Anyway, here are some pics of the party as promised … mainly of food!
I can’t wait until we get to meet this little boy!
