A Little Quilt for Baby
I attended a Baby Quilt workshop in May, but I forgot to bring my camera, so I'll have to get a picture of that quilt later. At the workshop, one of our talented quilters donated a bag of these cheerful 9-patch blocks. I offered to take it home and piece a baby quilt from them. I was astounded to count 81 blocks in the bag!! I wondered what size quilt she made that had that many leftover blocks!
Anyway, I figured the blocks would stand out more if I alternated them with solid squares. I went with the dark tan so it would contrast with the white. I love the way it looks and we have enough left to do 3 more baby quilts! I will try to get another picture after someone machine quilts and binds this one.
Yesterday was my little Andy's 4th birthday, so I've been super duper busy getting ready for his party on Sunday. The weather is supposed to be nice, so I'm sure we will have fun! Back soon!
