Sweet Baby Boy (version 1 and 2)

Back in December-ish I created this quilt which I called “sweet baby boy.”  (The finished quilt measured about 45” x 45”)  I listed it in my shop but apparently failed to blog about it – which is no big deal until I want to write a blog post that refers BACK to this quilt… which didn’t exist on my blog.  Y’all with me still?

Fast forward to August 2011.  I was digging through my closet and found some leftover blocks from the Sweet Baby Boy quilt.  There were maybe 10 or so blocks, and then a stack of scraps as well.  I was able to piece the scraps together to get a few more blocks, add some Kona snow as sashing and came up with this:

I know it doesn’t photograph well – it really looks SO much better in person.  This second quilt measures about 45” x 60” – yes…. bigger than the original quilt.  A yard or so of solid fabric can do amazing things when you combine it with a pile of scraps.  (side note:  Please don’t throw out your scraps.  If you don’t care to hang on to them, send them to me and I’ll put them to good use!)

This second quilt is going to find a new home at the Center for Women and Children in Crisis. 


  1. They are both so sweet- love the soft tones :)

  2. I love the colors of that quilt. Or should I say, both of those quilts. I'm going to rummage through my ginormous stash and see if I can find something in that color range. Thanks for the inspiration!
