Another Baby Quilt!
Super simple squares.
Flannel on the front and a cotton on the back.

I never buy fabric for these little quilts,
so I have quite a time trying to figure out
what goes with what!
But I do like a challenge!

My flannel fabric all comes from the $1 "pile"
at a local fabric store that tries to sell all that
OLD fabric that nobody wanted.
Usually the pieces in the pile are 1 yard or less.
So-o-o,
Now I have a fabric "pile" at my house
that I try to use up!
I really like the way that plaid binding helps
PERK up this quilt.
I also got a couple of little gifts this weekend!
I was so surprised to receive
TWO little somethings from
TWO friends within
24 hours!

a fabric gift.
isn't this cute?


As you can see it's a little girl's dress...
but the fabric is the best!
I may CUT it UP!




Then another girlfriend gave me this!
Isn't it sweet?

I might HAVE to cut this up too.....
OR...I could do minimal cutting
and make a super cute apron!

Thanks friends!

  2. Simple patterned quilt, yes. But you sure do have an eye for placement and color. This one is "lullaby sweet!"

  5. I had a dress made of similar fabric in the baby quilt years ago. I loved that dress.
    I think that piece that your girlfriend gave you is really pretty- an apron or a pretty pillow sham (would last longer)
