Baby, Baby...

About a month ago, a young couple we know had their first baby, and I thought I'd better get my act together and make a quilt. Mind you I started it when the Mum was in her 6 month of pregnacy. As they chose to Not find out the gender of the baby, I decided to go with bright childrens fabrics.

I tend to make baby/childrens quilts, so they may be used in the cot, then on their first little bed.
They can also use it to lay baby on the floor.
I free motion machine quilted it. 

I followed an idea from Susan Clair of  www.gourmetquilter.com

How to have Fun with Novelty 5" squares - Quilting Tips & Techniques 062.

This is the you tube site

Its a fun way to use up all those childrens style fabrics. This is the back of the quilt so its actually double sided.

 Thanks for dropping by

Super cute with all of those bright and fun children's prints. I'll check out the pattern. It's nice to have a few easy ones up your sleeve.

A lovely fun quilt and good idea to make it a decent size so that it can be enjoyed for longer.
