You get to enter two quilts into the Blogger's Quilt Festival (hosted by Amy's Creative Side) so I thought I might as well pick another, especially now that I've got this blog up and running!
My second entry is in the Baby Quilt section. It's a surprise for a co-worker, so here's hoping she doesn't stumble across this little blog before her shower in a couple weeks! She and her husband are expecting their first baby - a little boy.
This baby quilt is made from a Simply Color layer cake (well, half of the layer cake - the boyish half, I still have the more girlish half left!) and a white solid I already had on hand. It's hard to find good boyish fabrics that aren't cartoon-y or overly primary, but I think this color scheme really works for a little boy. The back is a bunch of blues pulled from my stash. The tutorial is on Moda Bake Shop and is called Hot Cross Buns.
The trimming of the squares made quite a little pile of scraps. I took this picture and posted it on Facebook - and one of my friends asked if I was making a quilt for a mouse! I'm pretty sure I actually LOLed when I read that :)
Thanks for reading!
