BYU Baby

This morning, I decided to make my baby's first blanket.  Naturally, I thought a BYU blanket would be the best option!  It will work for either a boy or a girl, so I decided to go for it.  I had made a BYU blanket for our queen size bed a little less than a year ago (you can see a picture of it HERE) so I decided to do a similar one for the baby, only cuter!  I made the pattern, DJ and I cut it out, and then I sewed it!  It only took like 2 hours, and here's how it came out:

Do you love it?  I'm so in love.  I have a normal sized crib that's going to go in the baby's room, but I bought an adorable cradle to keep in our room so I can have the baby close at first.  The tiny BYU blanket is for the cradle:

Oh my goodness I'm so excited to put a baby in that cute little bed!!!  Since I was already on a roll, I helped Matty finish a quilt I had started for him almost a year ago:

He's just about the biggest Michigan fan ever, so I decided this would be the perfect quilt for him.  It was so nice to have energy to do things that I love today!  I'm hoping to find more energy in the coming weeks.  Yay for the second trimester!!!


  1. Ooo, I love your cradle. That will be perfect for the first couple of months when you are getting up all night!

  2. I feel so behind -- that's amazing that you already have a crib AND cradle! And that blanket really is darling! GO BYU!
