Rainbow Baby Quilt
The photo above shows Nickolas chilling out maxing relaxing all cool on the quilt I made for him recently. Is he not the cutest almost-nephew baby you've ever seen?
I made this quilt using the block that Solidia chose for her month in The Incredible Shrinking Quilters' Bee. I have no idea where that block pattern came from, but when I saw this I knew I had to use that block to make a baby quilt.
I'm especially proud because I made not one but two quilts like this, and almost all of the materials came from my stash. I had to purchase one or two pink prints and about four orange prints. Kristal gave me a few black and white prints from her stash. I pieced the batting out of scraps and made backing and binding from several yards of fabric I had in my closet. I did, however, buy some nice thread for quilting.
Overall, I'd call the project a success. Cute!
