Another Baby Quilt
I bought this fabric before Baby B was born, right when we first new he was a boy.
I love this. It's Michael Miller and I thought it would be great as a back for a baby boy quilt. But I could never come up with an idea that I liked. Then, this week I felt a need to go with it. I pulled a bunch of dots from a 10 inch square swap of dots and solids I had recently done and some from a layer cake and a few prints and I had this:
I include just a few squares of the boy prints. There are also some puppies from Sherbet Pips and some that are also Michael Miller that match the boy print.
I am so happy with the way it turned out. And it was very fast. It took about 5-6 hours total from start to finish. These pictures are before I put it through the washer and dryer to crinkle it nicely.
The binding is also Michael Miller...Dumb Dots blue with grey dots. I do love all the dots going on here.
Here is a shot of some of the puppies. I only had a small bit of these fabrics. I also didn't use any really small dots on this patchwork.
Quilt measures approx. 40 x 42. Have a great weekend.
