Baby “W” quilt

A while back I mentioned I was working on some projects I couldn’t show yet as they were gifts.  This quilt was one of them.

This is for a great young couple in our church who are expecting their first child, a boy in early September.  The shower was on Saturday.

I had a hard time getting a decent picture of it.  The colors look so washed out. 



I prefer a not so plain quilt back.  I had a leftover square from the front so added that to the back to brighten it up.  I quilted it myself which I haven’t done much of so I used straight line and outline quilting and left it at that.  I actually kind of like it.  It’s not so stiff like quilts can get with a lot of quilting.


This was my first attempt at a computer printed label.  Hopefully it will last and not wash out right away.


The red fabric was cute but the stripe was my favorite and the best part was I found it in my stash!


  1. Great pictures! I bet little W will love it and I'm sure mom & dad do, too. :) Nice quilting!

  2. That's a great looking quilt. I really like how you added some of the blocking to the back. Such a great gift. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  3. Love your quilt pattern. It turned out great and I know the new baby will love it. Love & blessings from NC!

  4. Love the colors!!! Not the normal baby blues---I bet they loved it!
