I have two finishes for you today…it’s my Unicorn Baby quilts. They were simple…and I’d like to say quick to make. They are full of scrappy goodness!!
Normally these would be quick to make but, I went about making them via a L-O-N-G route. I don’t have anyone in mind for these. I will save them and when a baby comes along I will gift them. I love having something already on hand. They might go for a benefit as well.
I made two. When you first look at the picture it might look like it’s one big quilt…but no, there are two. These are both bigger than what some would call a baby quilt. They are 48″ x 54″.
I typically make baby quilts this size. Anymore, babies aren’t supposed to sleep with blankets because of SIDS risk. I lost both a great niece and a great nephew to SIDS so our family has learned the hard way not to use blankets in a baby’s crib.
If the quilts are bigger they can…be a playmat when they are little and when they are older even into preschool, they can use them more then.
I did straight-line quilting on these.
I liked the simple look for this as the quilt is already so busy.
These quilts really helped put a dent in my 2 1/2″ scrap bucket.
The quilt is made up of nine patches and panel blocks.
You can purchase the panel HERE on Amazon.
The only difference between the two quilts is the binding. One got pink polka dots and the other a teal stripe.
The backing is a 100% cotton sheet from the thrift store.
It was great to work with.
I’m so pleased to have these two done. Now I won’t feel the pressure to get something made when I learn that someone is expecting…well, maybe I will if they are expecting a boy. HA!!
If someone is interested, I would be able to write up a pattern. Let me know if you’re interested in that.
These are both folded up and resting in my stack of quilts to be given away. Whew…it’s so good to have them done.
