Well my laziness is not 100% cured, so that is why I am posting about our weekend on Tuesday :) So, this past Friday we headed to College Station for Jeff to sponsor a team & participate in a golf tournament with his old department.
While he was golfing, William and I went and hung out with my sister and then our good friends Brandon and Christine. They are expecting their first child this December, and I am super excited because they are having a girl!! Now I get to sew little girl stuff!
Hullabaloo's. Now my fellow Aggies please don't hate me, but this was the first time we have ever been to Hullabaloo's!
It was just as delicious as everyone says it is!! William got a pancake that was bigger than his face, Jeff got a delicious looking green chile burger, and I got a to-die-for ham & cheese omelet with home fries.
This weekend I also got to give Christine and Brandon the little quilt that I made for Peyton.
tutorial for a car seat quilt from Moda Bake Shop to make the quilt. It was a really easy to follow tutorial, and I definitely think I will be using it again in the future. I wish I Would have made William one when he was little because the quilt has ties on the side that allow you to tie it onto a car seat or stroller.
I backed the quilt in a super soft Minky and I didn't use a batting between the layers. Texas winters are cold, but not that cold so I didn't want the quilt to be too heavy. I quilted it with an allover loopy pattern with 50wt Aurifil 2311. I love this color thread because it is an eggshell color and it doesn't take away from the quilt itself.
