Newborn Snuggler

A dear friend asked me a few weeks ago to make a baby quilt she could use as a gift, and I was happy to do it. There was just one catch…it had to be done very quickly, as the baby was due this past Monday! No time for a fancy design, no time to send it out for longarm quilting. I was on my own and the clock was ticking. So I grabbed a handful of fat quarters and got to work. Here’s the result:

It was fast and fun, and we’ve posted a free baby quilt pattern on our website so you can make one, too. If you’ve got a little one coming and a weekend for quilting, I hope you’ll give it a try!

    I thought it was very cute, easy to do I think, I know what size and what size the lg blocks and small ones are. I need to make two for two new girls.

    Correction: I didn’t know what size is it

    Really cute and nice & easy looking. I’m thinking of using the idea for a quick Christmas quilt I was supposed to do for this past Christmas. Very nice.

    That quilt is really nice and quick. I make one out of charm squares and leave an area about two squares by 4 or 5 squares, make this out of plain white and applique a little flower with stem and a leaf and it is really pretty for a little girl, using soft florals in the charm squares with a spash of bright color every so often. Makes a great shower gift.

    This is really a cute design. I have similar squares in similar colors I have been shuffling around since six this morning and am still not happy. I’ll try this tomorrow morning.
