Remember that stack of quilts that Kelli brought home to be quilted. Well I decided I might as well start on an easy one….This was originally a Miss Rosie Schnibble pattern. I asked Kelli if she wanted to use it as a wall hanging. She said no. Then I suggested adding a border and making it big enough for a baby quilt by adding a border. She liked the idea so I was on the hunt for a good border fabric.
I was happy with the “up-sizing” and then was on the hunt for a backing. I rummaged around and found a 1 3/4 yard piece of fabric that I had found at the thrift store. Luckily with a little piecing is was big enough for a backing.
After getting it quilted I was on the hunt for a binding fabric. The red was a hard one to match so I scrimped and tweaked and was just able to get enough red to make enough binding of the border fabric.
We have a baby that is going to be getting this quilt. It seams to be baby season around here!!..and no, none of my kids.
Even though it’s a small quilt it sure is nice to have one more quilt finished.
Today weâ€™re sharing our finished quilt at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Crazy Mom Quilts, and Link a Finish Friday.

Beautiful quilt–and one baby is going to be very lucky to be the recipient of this quilt
Any finish is a good finish, right? This will be a sweet baby quilt – not so “babyish” that it can’t be used well past babyhood. And great use of those fabrics! I love it when I can finagle a way to use up the last little bit of a fabric on the binding or backing.
Love the dots! – They are just so cheerful – an excellent finish to the quilt.
I do like this quilt. The red border really brings the centre to life. Glad you were able to use the same fabric for the binding because that works well too.
I also love your choice of border fabric. I wouldn’t have thought that dotty fabric can create overall such a nice effect.
What a cute quilt! The border and binding are just perfect. Looks like a really happy baby quilt.
I love Miss Rosie’s Schnibble patterns! Love the baby quilt!
Like your baby quilt – gives us an idea to make for one of our babies. Thanks for sharing and congrats on your finish.
Here, too! Found out about two new moms the same week. Fortunately, I have a while. Your baby quilt is a great gift.
