You might remember that a bit ago I made a baby quilt for one of my childcare families that just had a new baby. This quilt. (Read about it here if you missed that)
The family didn’t find out if they were having a boy or a girl so about two weeks before the baby was due, I went with my gut and started a boy quilt. WELL, surprise! They had a girl. So now I was stuck with a started boy baby quilt.
That didn’t bother me a bit. But I didn’t want to get it finished. So here it is…all finished.
Personally, I think I like the boy version better. I think it’s only because the colors are more to my liking.
For the last one, I did a quilting motif with circles…this time I did the boxes. This is one of my favorite designs to make.
The majority of the fabric came from the big box of scraps I bought from Connie at the retreat.
Note that all the centers of the nine patches have a dark blue center.
Can you say, perfect backing???
The binding was a fabric I picked up at the thrift store.
What a fun little quilt.
If you’re looking for the pattern it came from this book, Oh Scrap, (WHICH I LOVE!!). I’ll be making more quilts from this book.
I used cream based fabrics and muslin for the “boy” version.
I also made mine bigger in a 5 x 5 setting.
…and here’s the Ruby picture. It was really sunny and the sun in eyes was an issue.
I do love the little quilt. I can easily see me making another. It’s a great way to use of scraps.
Now I have had a quilt finish 4 Fridays in a row. Hmmm. The pressure is on. I think I should try to tackle another don’t you? Another quilt finish by next Friday. I think I can…I think I can…I think I can!
