Patchwork Baby Quilt

I am forever making things at the last minute, and this baby quilt for a friend was no exception! I cut the squares on Thursday night, sewed it together, quilted, and sewed the binding to the front on Friday night, and stitched the binding down by hand on Saturday before the shower. I even had five spare minutes to photograph it before I had to head to the shower on Saturday! I love a good challenge :)

Since my friends know the baby is a girl, it was the perfect excuse to sew with my Brush Strokes collection. I added in a few Cirrus Solids, some Kona Highlight (the perfect bright yellow!) and a bundle of Cotton & Steel's Checkers, which are the cutest woven gingham prints! I love how it turned out despite being such a simple quilt!

I quilted it with a wide crosshatch pattern through each of the blocks. I can't seem to quit the crosshatch quilting lately!

I backed it with my Flowerfield print and a small strip of the Aqua Trellis. It finished at about 40x50".

Glad to have this project finished and excited to see it in use by my friend's little one very soon!
