These pictures are just the starting of the baby quilt I’m making for the daughter of a friend. You can click on the pictures to get a bigger view of them.

This last picture, with the four blocks, I had the bottom right block out of order for the picture. But when I sewed them all together, I made sure it was turned the right way… I bordered each block with the light blue material with the dots, then had a border of it the whole way around the blocks too. Then the outside border is yellow.

Her baby’s room is done in all bright primary colors so I was really excited when I found the light blue fabric that had the dots of yellow, green, orange and dark blue in it! I’m pretty happy with how it’s turning out… I’ve got it all sewn together and am working on the quilting now. I hope to get it done this weekend, then I’ll post pictures of the completed project.

I haven’t done many actual quilted items. I made a flag wall hanging that was quilted for my brother a few years ago, but most of my quilts have been rag quilts… not actually piecing things together, then quilting them.

I tend to be a bit hard on myself and have learned a lot from making this quilt. I think it is turning out great, but I’ve already got a list of things that I will do differently the next time…

Let me know what you think!
