Welcome to Wednesday, which we’ve dubbed #MakersWednesday in honor of the Maker in all of us (and you!). We’re happy you’re here with us to share & show off!
This week, I’ve got another quick baby quilt project to share. This one was inspired by the blue print fabric you’ll see there – it’s covered in jungle animals, so I picked up on the colors in that print and added the yellow and giraffe to go with it on the front, alternating blue and green flannels for the back. This project was very fast, due to the larger sized blocks and the rag-style method of finishing. It’s a bit small (the blocks are 9″ each), but it’s a good size to use as a quick cover-up or a play mat.

Welcome to #MakersWednesday, our favorite day of the week! We’re glad you’re joining us as we take a moment to pause and celebrate the Maker in all of us.
This week I’m sharing a simple baby quilt I made a few weeks back. A friend of mine had sent me this gorgeous piece of fabric, and I thought it would be great for a baby girl because it was feminine without being too traditional. I made this quilt a bit on the larger side, so it would grow with a baby from birth through toddlerhood and maybe even the preschool years!
To make it, I just put together pieces of fabric that were all the same width, alternating between my main fabric (the backing fabric) and strips in other semi-solids and tonals that would coordinate well. I’ve got a white-on-white print, a yellow floral, and a pink print with fairies in the mix. The whole thing is bound in the same yellow and backed with my focus fabric. It didn’t take long at all to put together, so it would be a great quick baby gift idea (assuming you have a fabric stash like mine).
