I love making baby quilts. They are so much fun and the instant gratification part if getting done quickly isn’t all bad either. I made these two as a custom order for my friend Tony. He is giving these as a special gift for his niece’s newborn baby girls.
He had asked for something that was consistent for both with a unique aspect for each girl. I used this awesome fabric, Giggles by Moda, in two color ways. Charm squares and skinny strips helped it go together quickly.
I made them a little but larger than I usually do baby quilts to create ample opportunity for the color story to develop. I kept going back and forth as to which I liked better and then I decided that I don’t have to pick.
For quilting I did a freehand all over pattern of swirls, loops, hearts and flowers. I am pleased with the result and hope Tony is too!
