Do you make baby quilts? I know some of my friends love to make baby quilts, but I haven't had a reason to make one - until now. Yes, finally a baby quilt for a new baby! One of my quilty friends is a new grandma, so this means that I get to make one of these sweet, cuddly blankets for the new arrival.
Most quilters make baby quilts in pastel colours with sweet animals and butterflies - well, you get the picture. So what colours am I using in my fabrics? Well, they aren't pastel, I'll tell you that! Red, yellow, blue and black are the main colours in this project. Now I know what you're thinking - it's for a boy, right? Wrong! This is a quilt for a little girl, but since mom loves everything Batman, I thought it would be appropriate to make the baby quilt in Batman fabric. So, here are the fabrics I'm using:
|Batman fabrics with coordinates|
|Here are the half-square triangles waiting to be squared up|
|This is what the HST's will grow up to be :)|
Now off to complete the blocks, add some borders and get it quilted. I want to get this done before she's old enough to say, "Holy pinwheels, Batman!"
How many baby quilts have you made? What's your favourite type of pattern and fabric to use?
