I'm taking a chance sharing this online before this gift reaches its new home but I'm willing to guess that the new momma isn't online as much these days. Hopefully, I'm not spoiling her surprise... but then again she doesn't even know I made her babe something.
Let me start off by saying that the finished quilt looks nothing like the kit directed. I was kinda bored by the way the original looked... so I completely changed the design, added some fabrics from my stash and did my own thing. Of course, I'm not saying what I came up with is more complicated. No, this is a really easy design. It's a big fabric square surrounded by little squares. Simple, right?
Now, because I changed the kit's design, I didn't have enough of the kit fabric to finish the backing. What's a girl to do? Add in a strip of squares from the front of the quilt!
The thing I really like about this baby quilt is that I've combined different textures. There's corduroy, flannel and some quilting cotton to mix things up.
