Quilt for Baby-Finished!

Here's the finished quilt. I'm very happy with it. It's very small, but so is he! I used the quilt binding technique that Heather Bailey teaches. Her pdf. is free and super easy to follow. Just four more months to go!

Quilt for Baby

I've not been motivated to do much, lately. But what I have done is start a quilt for my son. I ordered the fabric from Heather Bailey. You should check out her blog, too. It is so vibrant and rich. Since we are only slightly sure its a boy (he was laying in a very odd angle and our ultrasound was only a guess), I wanted to make something that was more gender neutral (and exciting). I love the combo of yellow, aqua, and red. In fact, here's some of my favorite inspiration:

Combined with a red cotton pattern I already had from a costume project, it makes a lovely pattern:

Now, it's time to go in and tweak a few squares so that the random pattern feels balanced, and then off to sew!
