I wish I could remember where online I first saw this idea. It's the easiest baby quilt ever! Starting with 5" squares I made the star......
......then surrounded it with more squares.
I had bought some great backing fabric at Hancock's of Paducah with help from my friend Shirley. I just love this Michael Miller fabric, "Monster Mash". Can you see the little baby monster? Too cute!
I basted both quilts at retreat and started hand-quilting one of them. I had some great colors of quilting thread from which to choose, and with Angela's help decided on purple. (Yes, I do have a problem with decisiveness!)
I got both quilts hand-quilted in 10 days, so I am now suffering from a flare-up of tendonitis, but it was well worth it. I just love these quilts.
The quilts are on their way to their new owners, baby Grant and baby Seth.
Now I am wondering if I can get the next baby quilts (for twins due in the fall) actually finished before the babies are born. What a concept, huh?
Since I completed my goal I am linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes.
