Baby Quilt.

My idea for the baby’s quilt was to combine an eclectic blend of fabrics, patterns, and colors. It would be a little girly in places, and a little boyish in others, with lots of neutral patterns in between. Colors like orange and pink bordering each other in a combination that only JUST works.

Mom and I spent hours debating different fabric choices and in what order they should be placed. In the end, we chose 17 different fabrics and got 1/8 of a yard of each of them. We took them home, cut them into 3 inch strips, and sewed them together. A "strip quilt" - named this because it is composed of many strips of fabric. This is the easiest quilt I have ever made, taking approximately three hours of my Easter Sunday afternoon, from start to finish. The end dimensions will be 40x46, and the only thing left to do is cut some backing, batting, and binding and then quilt the layers together.


  1. Yay! I love this! What a fun project for you to work on together as you anticipate Baby's arrival. Love the strips. :)

  2. When you say things to me like "I am going to make a baby blanket" I usually picture you going to Target and buying a blanket and than sewing a bow to it or something. All in all I am pretty much astounding with your magnificents!!!!
