Baby Quilts

I love making baby quilts. I actually love it when babies are born. There's nothing like holding a new born baby in your arms. I've been blessed to have this honor with my son and my six grandchildren.

This is Wyatt's quilt. Wyatt is the grandson of a friend of ours, David. David has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this young fella for a number of weeks. He arrived the week after Christmas.

The fabric is called Meadow Friends. It has bugs, dragonflies, and frogs on it. I thought it would be cute for a boy. The border will be orange and white. Mom (David's daughter) is a Clemson alumni.

The quilt is a tumbler pattern that I cut out using my Accuquilt cutter for the first time. It made short work of the task. I'm going to have to use it for some more quilts. It's the cat's meow.

Would you arrange the blocks any differently?

  1. It will be t-riffic no matter how you arrange them. Can't wait to see if finished.
