Another Donation Baby Quilt 2013

A friend shared some fabric she won in a drawing and I turned some of it into a sweet baby quilt. I sewed 2.5" x 5" pieces into rows and the rows into a brick pattern. Four rows went into the backing. The binding was cut from 2 fat quarters of coordinating yellow and orange solids. It was quilted with straight lines in a grid pattern using my sewing machine's walking foot. After a go in the washer and dryer, it finished at 37" x 40".
Our quilting guild would like members to make and donate a couple baby quilts and a few children's each year. I'll take this little quilt to July's meeting.

A lovely quilt. Sometimes the straight forward designs work the best. Lucky baby that's all I can say!
