Every Baby Needs a Quilt


Every baby needs a quilt.  or.  that's my excuse to sit down and make a quilt rather than washing my kitchen floor!

There's a new baby cousin in our family.  In the back of my mind I was toying with the idea of making a quilt, but it wasn't till after he was born that I decided I WAS making one.  I knew what the mom's nursery colors were, and I knew which style to make.


A while back, she commented on this one that I made for my kiddos, so I knew that's what I'd be making, only editing the colors a bit, rather than a total mish-mash.


When I make something as a gift, I'm always agonizing whether they'll like it.  "should I have rather gone with this?  what if this is just the one fabric they hate?"   on and on.  But this time I had a blast.  Because I knew her exact colors and what pattern to make.  I tried to add in fun motifs, although it was a little harder cause I was just going with teal, orange, green, black and white.


I think this little guy blowing bubbles is my favorite.


I didn't get a pic of the back, but it's a green and yellow flannel with a bit of an argyle print.

Stay tuned, I think there's a bit of a giveaway in the near future...  what should I give you;  fabric, or a finished project?

  6. what a fabulous quilt! Love the color combos!! I am wondering--is this a quilt-as-you-go? I can't seem to figure out how the back looks/works with that type of quilting, but I sure do like yours! Do you have any thoughts/tips for this method?

  21. What a fantastis quilt! I love these sort of modern log cabins and think they make a super child's quilt. So much colour and so many things for the little one to look at and point out and later to talk about.
