Scrappy Baby Quilt

I had started these blocks many months ago for another project.... But in an effort to try and get my UFO pile to disappear.... I decided to make a baby quilt out of em.

Baby Quilt

This is one of those quilts where I wish I would have stuck with the original plan and just kept going and made it my size!

It's such a happy, cheery, bright quilt! And I love it. ..

Our weather has been less than desirable around here.... {especially for picture taking} We happened to have a few sun breaks yesterday so I grabbed three quilts and rushed outside for photos. (twice during the day) Including my Fishy quilt!

BUT.... these are the only photos that turned out. Drat....

It's raining buckets again today, so as soon as we get more sun breaks, I'll head back out. ... Until then...


Happy Sewing! ooxx`jodi

So sweet and HAPPY, yep, I agree you better be making one for you!!

KaHolly said...

I love it! I'd want one my size, too. The weather here is just as miserable. Guilt-free sewing time!!

Becky said...

It really is a pretty, summery quilt. Perfect! I think your rain is heading our way to Idaho. Oh well. Maybe I can find more time to quilt this weekend myself.

Deborah said...

This is MY kind of quilt......bright colors....fresh white!

Lynn said...

I love it! Really sweet and adorable.

That will be one happy baby who receives that quilt. Can you send some of that rain down here to San Antonio, TX? It's HOT and fairly dry at the moment. It's even been too hot to turn on the iron!

Jodi...it's so sweet and simple!!!
Perfect for a baby quilt and it would be great bigger too!

Karen said...

Hi Jodi! I LOVE this baby quilt! Since you're so happy with this quilt, maybe you should plan to make an adult sized one. Don't you just love quilts with white backgrounds?!!! I do. I have a couple smallish ones I made a few years ago and always wish they were larger.

Hope your weather improves!

Judi said...

Very wet here in England too, its been raining all week!
I love the quilt, I have a baby quilt to make and I think I'm going to have a go at something like yours, I really like to have lots of white in amongst the colours, it makes for a fresh bright feel, just right for a baby or child.

Anne said...

I love the quilt too!

It's really raining buckets here in northwest Florida today also, but it's a great day for sewing, if not for picture taking. Your little quilt is lovely! I love the 9-patch, 4-patch mix with the white. So bright and fun! Lovely!
