I must have made close to ten baby quilts in the last two years…I am at “that age”. Here are two from The Modern Quilt Workshop.
This one is the Once Upon a Time pattern. [please ignore the unfinished binding and the quilt behind it! :)] The woman I teach with that chose the pattern is a communication arts teacher (English). I think it’s perfect that she selected this pattern because it is essentially a story telling quilt. The child/parent points to a block and starts the story. You continue to another block that is connected to keep the story going. Some blocks only have one path, while others have multiple options or are dead ends. Imagine the story telling possibilities!
I love the Plain Spoken pattern. Something about the simple shapes and the use of all solids makes me smile. This was my first time to quilt in a circle- or any type of curve for that matter. [the only quilts I do the actual quilting on are baby size quilts. I take my others to a woman with a long arm.] Ha! “a woman with a long arm.” That brings a funny image to mind. :)
I love the way a quilt wrinkles after you take it out of the dryer. Yummy! [for what it’s worth, I am on the “don’t wash your fabrics before quilting” side of the Great Fabric Washing Debate.]
