Karen's baby quilt

This past weekend we held a shower at my house for my good friend Karen, who is about to have her first baby! My shower co-host (who also loves to quilt, but sadly does not have a blog) and I knew right away that we wanted to collaborate on a quilt for the baby.

If you’ve been following along, I’ve made my fair share of baby quilts out of Nicey Jane fabric. It’s such a sweet fabric line, and is perfect for these quick little quilts. We went with the yellow, green, and blue prints for this quilt, and used coordinating prints for the back of the quilt.

Best of all, Karen loved it! She said she’d like to keep it for herself (and, as a shower guest pointed out, the baby would never know!). It kind of coordinates with the zig-zag quilt I made for Karen as a gift for being in our wedding! I’m glad they’ll look nice together.

I’ll be back soon with some of the photos from the shower!

Ahh, how I love using Heather Bailey’s line of Nicey Jane fabric for baby quilts. I stocked way up on this fabric last year, when I was using it for assorted wedding quilts and gifts, and I am still not tired of it. I was looking to make a quick, satisfying project a couple of weeks ago, so I cut some 5 inch charm squares, and sewed them up along with white and grey charms.

The result was this little quilt– I love how the pattern almost looks like a large scale gingham!

I also used some of the prints on the back of the quilt– This might be one of my favorite quilt backs!

Such a fun little quilt to make and to look at!
