Baby Quilt

My BFF's nephew had a baby boy a little while ago so I decided to make him a quilt.  I've started sewing again and I knew this wouldn't be too challenging.  I bought some crisp cottons in bright blues and greens...


I just cut different sized squares and placed different patterns together until I found what I liked.  I haven't made a quilt from an actual pattern yet but that may be a project for next winter.  I'd like to buy a frame so I could hand quilt a larger piece.  This the top in the process of being assembled...


Here's the top all sewn together and trimmed and ironed.  I used a light blue cotton as backing that had little yellow stars and suns on it.  One layer of batting was sewn between the top and bottom and I machine quilted around the large blocks and voila...


I'm sending this little quilt to its' new little owner tomorrow.  I hope these cheerful colours bring a smile to his face.
