Finnley's quilt

Don't worry- this is a non-chair-related post. Are you sick of that chair project yet? Heehee, sorry. :)

I was feeling pretty tired yesterday, but with 5 kids running/crawling around my house I couldn't nap like I wanted, so instead I sewed. Remember the quilt I started for my baby last month? I finally finished it.

I was waiting for Joann to restock on binding in the color I wanted, and quite honestly kept forgetting to look when I'd go. During a trip there the other day I actually remembered and they actually had it!

Binding this quilt was frustrating. I don't know what it is, but me and quilt binding do not get along. There's some hard feelings and baggage and, well, we just don't understand one another. This time it surrendered- it would bind my son's quilt, but in a very sloppy, lumpy, twisty sort of way. The backing was my old shower curtain.

I had to take the bumper off of Finnley's crib since he'd just stand on it and make it all squished and flat. Even though the teething guards are still on, I'm glad he's got his quilt to add some color back to the crib.

Did you make the teething guards?? If you did, how did you do it??

I'm also hoping you can post how you made the teething guard. It's the best one I've seen online and I'd like to make one for my daughter. :)

I was hoping you would PLEASE do a tutorial on how you made the crib teething guard. I would love to make one for our little one!

I would also like a teething guard tutorial. That would make an excellent baby shower gift.

Didn't you have a tutorial on the crib teething guards? I have the picture of them pinned and all my fabric cut out from my last baby. I am expecting a new baby and wanted to finish this project but now can't find the directions.
