A baby quilt

I know a lot of quilters give away most of the quilts they make.  I don't have those kinds of friends

Or maybe I just lack that kind of confidence.  I worry that my friends would think a homemade baby quilt would be lame.  Cheesy.  Crappy.  I don't know that my friends are really the "OMG, A HOMEMADE QUILT!" kind.

Yet, that's what I worked on over the weekend. 

9-10 inch blocks all ready for sashing and borders.

I think it looks pretty good.  It's all pieced from fabric I had on hand.  I did pick up some fabric for the sashing and borders because I didn't have enough in my stash unless I went with the yellow - I'm going to use the yellow with birds for the binding.

  1. I've given a couple of quilts as gifts but I've always wondered if they ended up being used for the dog or something. *sigh* I wish I had friends who got it. Anyway, your quilt is great and I'm sure it won't be used for the dog!
