James' Baby Quilt

One of my coworkers was having a baby girl so I was super excited to make a baby quilt. I really enjoy baby quilts because they come together so quickly and the quilt so easily, no bulk to fight with.

I was originally going to do a log cabin with pink, blue, white, and green, but every way I put it together I hated the way it looked...

I decided to do a granny square pattern instead, doing 4 large granny square blocks with just the pink and green.

I really like the way it turned out and I sort of got. Some "free fabric" out of it too. I barely used the blue so I'm going to be able to use it for something else now.

I quilted it with a swirly heart design that I hadn't done before and by the end of it I had gotten into the hang of and will be able to do it again.

Overall it came together pretty quickly and it was a simple classic quilt. The family loves it and I can't wait to get a picture w the baby on it!
