My friend Lori had her baby shower on Sunday. Lori is one of the most thoughtful, nice, and creative people I know, so I wanted to make something special for her. We went fabric shopping a few weeks ago and she fell in love with a vintage inspired fabric. Of course I had to be sneaky and go back and buy the fabric to make a quilt :)
It is just a simple quilt, I didn't want to do anything to detract from the adorable fabric. I didn't use my machine to quilt it, I just used embroidery thread to tie it. I like the thread, it give the quilt a "kid" look.
The back is a solid panel of this green fabric. It is a 1930's reproduction fabric.
Some of my favorite ladies: Tara, Jackie, Lisa, Samantha, Lori, me, Krista, and Erin. I always have so much fun with them!
After the baby shower my husband Luke and I decided that we wanted to get some drinks at the beach seeing as the weather was in the seventies. This was our view from the restaurant, beautiful! Have I mentioned that I love living by the beach???
Luke, wearing a Clippers hat of course. You can't see it, but trust me, it's Clippers.
Our first cocktail was a shrimp and crab cocktail. Yum!
My second cocktail was a more traditional one (meaning it had alcohol and not seafood) and it was amazing. I actually didn't order it, the waiter just gave it to me because he wanted me to try it. What a nice way to spend a Sunday, I love California!
