Baby Paintbox Quilt

I started this while in the last days of pregnancy. Baby turned 3 months old this past Tuesday.  So, this is what 20 minutes of sewing a day will get you;

I was stumped on what the binding should be for a while but ran across this lovely polka dot satin at the Joann’s and made half a yard into just the right amount of binding.

I added a stripe on the back in the dead center. The minkee came up just a smidge short and this is how I made up the 3 inches I needed to match the front.

In full disclosure I should tell you I did not use any batting in this quilt. Strange, right? Well, it was very intentional. I noticed that we had not been using the baby quilts I had for miss d. but instead using the store bought minkee blankets, and I realized the reason was the quilts I had made, even with thin cotton batting, were just too bulky to use. So, this is just fabric and minkee and it feels like just the right weight, better for traveling from room to room and snuggling with at naptime.

Pink and Red Baby Quilt

It was sold before it was even finished! I would have thought twice about selling it if I knew how much I would love it, the pink and red, the lattice pattern, the dress with the same fabric, all of it makes my heart sing.
