Donation Baby Quilt

Our quilt guild requests that members make and donate a couple baby quilts a year. I made the baby quilt in the picture using an assortment of 2.5" x 5" pieces of pretty fabric and some orange yardage, all sent to me by a friend. I cut and sewed some of the pieces into 4.5" four patch blocks and some into 4.5" two patch blocks. I used some of the orange yardage for a skinny border and most of the rest became the backing. The binding was made with some 2.5" x 5" pieces sewed end to end and I quilted it with wavy lines. After a go in the washer and dryer, the quilt finished at 33" x 33". I'll take it to next week's meeting.

Love it! I like the orange pieces and they blend so well with the other colors. You make good choices! Love the wavy lines you quilted, too. They are so even compared to mine.
