Hannah’s Baby Presents

My niece Hannah had a baby shower at Bob’s parent’s church this past weekend in North Carolina.  My sister-in-law (Hannah’s mom) absolutely loves bunnies.  So I made Hannah a bunny quilt!  It was a lot of fun and wow those bunnies took a lot of time.  But they were worth it.  Though I might try to avoid too much applique in my future quilts!





Alice was sick the end of last week so we actually had to stay home and miss the baby shower.  I was pretty bummed.  But I was also feeling really tired out, so it was nice to have a quiet weekend at home.  Alice slept a ton, even more than usual, so I watched movies and just chilled.  It was great!

I also made Hannah some jingle bell blocks and a bib.  For the blocks I used a foam cushion and cut them to size (an electric meat slicer works great).  I cut a hole in the center to put a jingle bell inside.  They are so cute and I love the slight little ringing.  Can’t wait to see Hannah chomping on them and shaking them with delight!  I really like how they turned out.  The bib I made from following the pattern in this book.  It ended up little on the big side.  I guessed at the pattern a bit.  Still cute though. 


  1. Boy shell I wish I had 1/2 your talent. You do beautiful work.
    You inspire me. Perhaps next week I’ll get back in my sewing room. I just got a computer hooked up I so can use my embroidery part of my machine again.

  6. VERY cute! I imagine those bunnies DID take quite a while. But definitely well worth it as I’m sure hannah will always hold onto it and know that her Aunt Michelle made it for her.

  8. Way too cute! And how adorable is she going to be laying on the blanket playing with those blocks? You’re awesome, Michelle!

    If our next one’s a girl I’m so going to have to commission tons of cuteness from you.

  9. Thanks you guys for all of your encouragement! I do love sewing and especially making gifts for people. I’m hoping to eventually make some of those blocks and maybe a matching blanket to put on etsy. But those dreams are slowing down these days as things ramp up around here in other ways.

    Anyway, thanks so much for all the nice comments! It makes me want to sew and create more.

  10. We absolutely love the gifts Michelle made for us. We have the quilt hanging over our Glider chair. I know Hannah will love the blocks too. We are so lucky to have such a talented Aunt! Thanks again Michelle!

  11. […] and pillow for her birthday in April. I used super soft baby flannel that I had on hand from making Hannah’s quilt. I used tie quilting to quilt this little number using a stitch on the machine. I like how fluffy […]
