Foster Daughter and her husband welcomed baby#2, David William, to the world on Friday. Babies take a while to get ready. We have a lot of notice. But, somehow, I hadn’t made a thing for the new arrival.
So, Friday night turned into a sewing marathon: Speedy Baby Quilt. Here are a few pictures.
Whew! Done and delivered to the hospital Saturday afternoon.
Just a few notes on the quilt: I had a single fat quarter the car fabric. That yielded 12 5″ squares. Combine with other scrappy fabrics that were tonal or very plain prints. I look for something that matches and won’t take the focus off the novelty print. I used a total of 64 squares. Random layout. The finished quilt is 36″ square. Not large, but OK for a newborn. And just right for times when you need a speedy quilt.
