Earlier I showed you a baby quilt I started working on while I was suppose to be packing (the story is here if you missed it) Last time it was this big….
Well now it’s this big. It’s much cuter than the picture shows. For some reason the colors just don’t pop the way they do in real life.
Right now it’s 36″ x 36″. Technically it’s big enough for a baby quilt but I like to make them bigger. Now days baby’s don’t use baby quilts like they used to. Car seats have covers so blankets don’t get thrown over car seats and SIDS prevention says no blankets in the cribs with babies. That’s why I like to make my baby quilt a minimum of 40″ x 40″ and actually like closer to 48″ x 48″ so they can be used well into toddler and preschool years.
Well I don’t have much more solid fabric left that matches the solids in the quilt so the 4-patch theme has to end. I was thinking on just going with a border. Sadly what’s shown below is all I have left from the fabric line and isn’t it bland??
It doesn’t make the quilt pop at all.
Kalissa was home and said to go with a solid red border. Of course that is all packed away already. I don’t need this quilt any time soon and it’s okay for me to wait with finishing it. I just know that I’d prefer not to buy any more fabric.
Then again…maybe I should just finish it at this size. What do you think??
