I made this quilt for my new niece Alexis. It looks huge compared to her tininess…but it’s a nice big size she can grow into a bit. I used the 60 degree ruler by Creative Grids, and started with 6" strips and scraps. In all honestly I don’t love sewing with triangles…but I always love the result!
I love adding a really soft backing to baby quilts with a light batting that keeps the quilt warm but not stiff. I used a little bit of basting spray and pins, then minimally quilted some lines 1/2" away from the seams.
My 3 year old helped me get photos of this quilt. His cute little arms could barely hold the quilt up for one second before it got too heavy.
So if you’re in need of a quilt-holder-upper… I’ve got the 3 year old for you…and I’m happy to lend him out.
As long as you stay out of all social situations/grocery stores/Target/church/restaurants/gatherings and stock up on string cheese… he’ll do great. ;)
