Last year in the chaos of moving to Seattle, I somehow forgot to make a baby quilt for one of my cousins! Her second child, and the first boy, was born last July and it wasn’t until I received an invitation to his first birthday party that I realized I had never made him a baby quilt. I had these prints in my stash, so I thought I’d play around with some hexagons. I drafted a hexagon template based on the best size to use with fat quarters (my hexie template has 3″ sides, if you’d like to replicate it). The fat quarter set that I had wasn’t quite enough, so I pulled some other prints from my stash as well.
(Whoops, Matt is holding the quilt upside down here! That’s what I get for quickly snapping some pictures just before packing up for our trip!)
I quilted it in an all over meandering with a green veriagated thread like I used here.
The binding is a print from Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry.
And on the back I used two flannels from my stash. The yellow is part of Anna Maria Horner’s collection (the softest flannel EVER!). And the green is a print from JoAnn’s. It was too cute to pass up!
How cute are those animals?!?
At approximately 35″ x 42″, this quilt is still a great size for a toddler to snuggle under. And I just received a thank you from my cousin saying that Liam has been doing just that!
