Woodland Baby Quilt

26 Feb

My daughter has been going to the same daycare since I returned to work on March last year and her daycare provider recently had a baby. She is so great with Addie and I really appreciate everything she does. I asked her some general questions about her nursery, she said she had soft greens and blues and had a love of owls.

I made a simple square in square design and just played with the math until I had proportions I liked (it was really cold and windy the day I photographed this and my quilt holder was not very impressed).

The back is this wonderful woodland print from the line Critter Patch.

I quilted this with a free motion wood grain design that I practiced before Christmas. I’m embarrassed to say that this is the first actual finished piece I have free-motion quilted. It’s not perfect but it was actually really fun and I think it turned out great.

I always love making baby quilts. I like to imagine the quilt being well loved for many years.

    Love your quilt! Love the colors, love the blocks, love the fabrics you chose. You said you played around with the sizes until the math worked out. Could you tell me what size squares and strips you used, and the block sizes?
    I really appreciate your posting the beautiful picture, and what a lovely gift for someone you appreciate!

      Thank for stopping by and for the lovely words. You know I’m not actually sure what the dimensions were any more and I don’t have the quilt to double check. I think the finished block size is 8″, so they were 8.5″ unfinished. The centres were either 4″ or 4.5″ unfinished. Hope that helps a bit.
