I needed to make a quilt for a co-worker's new baby boy. I only had a few pieces left of a darling focal fabric that would be super cute for a little boy, but it wasn't even enough to become a receiving blanket let alone a quilt!
After making the edges of the scraps even, I pulled some coordinating prints and started working at my design board.
You can see the blue painter's tape on the left side where I made guidelines for the desired finished quilt size.
The black sashing really makes the colors pop.
Notice all the different quilting motifs. A baby quilt is a perfect first-time project because you can play and have some fun with whimsical quilting designs.
I really am happy with how this quilt turned out. I love the colors and the quilting. I hope you'll try your hand at improvisational piecing and don't let tiny fabric bits stop you!
My favorite way to express my creativity is with fabric. Join me as I share my journey with you. I hope you'll be inspired to create something too!
