This Quilt Needs a Baby!

Usually I make baby quilts on an "as needed" basis.  It's not the kind of thing I normally keep on hand.  Actually, what really happens is this:  Even though I know for almost nine months that I need to make a baby quilt, I wait until the baby is here and then frantically work on nothing else until Baby has a quilt.  When Matt and Tiffany were expecting earlier this year I knew that method wouldn't work since the baby's gender would not be known ahead of time.   I made a baby boy quilt and a baby girl quilt, and little Eva got her quilt on time.  That means I have a baby boy quilt ready just in case I need one.   

Isn't this the cutest?  I liked this monkey fabric so much when I bought it for Grant's quilt a few years ago that I bought all that was left on the bolt.  I like to give credit to publishers and designers, but I can't find the magazine from which I took this pattern.  I have looked and looked, but it must be hiding somewhere in the deepest darkest recesses of my messy sewing room. Just know that it is not my design and that I'm reasonably sure it's from a QNM publication.  

Now.  This quilt needs a baby.  So.  I'm waiting.........

  1. That quilt is adorable and I agree with you, it is a good idea to have some baby quilts made ahead of time. I have plenty of fabric to do just that, but I haven't gotten around to make them.....so apparently my plan is working so well. I guess I work well under pressure. Love that quilt and the next baby is going to be very lucky.
