My cute neighbor (the one who thinks I'm a tad bit crazy for photographing blankets in my backyard) had her overdue baby yesterday. I decided very last minute to make a quilt for them. Because I had only a short amount of time to put it together I came up with this very simple pattern. I pulled out the remainder of my Central Park fabric and made this quilt in just a few days. I really wanted to do the squares on point, but I didn't have enough fabric and wanted to just use what I had.
I used up all my leftover charms for the front and had some of the purple cobblestone fabric for the binding. I love the rounded corners. This was my first time trying it, and I think I will always do that for baby quilts. I love how it softens the overall look.
I had a few fat quarters that I used for the back which I did set on point. The final size is 44"x46". The sashing is Kona Snow.
Not too many pictures this time. It's snowing around here, and I don't think I'll get another good weather day before I give it to her. I hope she likes it. I've decided I love making baby quilts. I get to make and design a fun, pretty quilt, but they are nice and small with minimal time commitment. I do have a few more babies coming up (not mine) who need quilts. I have some fun ideas for those.
Edit: I got my idea for the rounded corners from this post from That girl...That quilt. She also shows how to cut a bias binding. I do mine a bit different, but it's all the same in the end.
