Baby quilt #2 is under my belt! A sweet friend of mine is having a little boy anytime now and I wanted to make her something special:
I've gotta say, I'm getting pretty good at sewing squares together. It's such an easy way to make something so personal and fun-- I really love this pattern for a quick and easy baby quilt. I whipped it up in about 2 afternoons.
I call it "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles".
The backing is flannel and I.LOVE.IT! So perfect for snuggling your baby on a crisp, fall night! It's also super-soft and will be great for "tummy time" or play time or whatever--
I really like how the zig-zag fabric did with the binding. I didn't necessarily try to create a color progression around the perimeter, but I love that it happened naturally. The other fabric up for grabs was the aqua with white dots. I think that would have looked really nice too, but I was worried that back would be too dotty.
I didn't put the letter "A" on the back because this baby hasn't been born yet and what if they don't name him what they think they will!? I also couldn't bear to cover up any of that soft, snuggly flannel.
I am so pleased with the way this quilt turned out and I hope baby A and his family love it!
Next up: I need to make some girl quilts!!
