Baby's Quilt

It is so wonderful to be anticipating this new baby without the overwhelming fear that I was feeling for some time! And so with a much lighter heart, I began working on "they baby's quilt" about two weeks ago (sort of strange referring to him or her as just "baby" since we knew the sex - and had even named - Lucy and Jack before they were even finished developing, but I have to say not knowing is incredibly exciting.)

Anyhow, it came together very easily, for I didn't choose a difficult pattern (Yes, I have learned to take it down a notch and keep life simple and FUN!) The quilt is fun and playful, colorful and made with love. All the things I know our baby will be!

So, here's some photos that show how it came together!
Okay...not sure why, but niether Firefox nor IE are letting me cut and paste my pictures, in order. So you'll have to appreciate it backwards ;-)

finished product!

the 30 squares laid out:

I sewed 2.25 in squares on all four corners of the 6 by 6 square, and then trimmed off the "outer triangle". With the iron, the triangles were pressed out, to create a square.


  1. Wow, it looks fantastic! I'd love for you to teach me how to do this.

  2. I am so proud of you! That came out awesome and you did it so fast! Impressive!
