2012 Thing a Week - Week 24 - Fox Trails Baby Quilt

All right, a real project!

So I know about 10 babies being born this year (oh, is it eleven now?) so I've been slowly making things for them. Mostly hats because I can sit and do that while Minnie plays, but I've finally gotten back in to sewing.

I popped out this baby quilt in about a week for my friend's shower and I'm in love. Baby quilts are amazing. They go together so quickly and the quilting is so much fun. I even finished the hand sewing part of the binding in about a day so it was super quick.

The fabric is a Fox Trails blue fat quarter set from Crafter's Vision. They started selling custom fat quarters and those are super dangerous for me. I can so easily see the quilt it will become and it's hard to stop myself from purchasing it. That Flea Market Fancy set is calling my name...

I used 7 fat quarters and cut four 6.5" x 9.5" bricks from each one. It turned out super cute, but since my quilting skills are limited I think I'll stick to squares for a while more. I felt it needed some vertical quilting, and after quilting it sort of looks like I put two blocks of the same pattern next to each other. Still super cute though!
