The Nice Baby Quilt

I got some good sewing time in this weekend after weeks away from my machine. It was so nice to be reunited.  I took the time to work on a baby quilt for some friends having a baby girl. Their last name is Nice so I made The Nice Baby Quilt!

I picked fabric…


I pieced…


I basted…


And I got the whole thing quilted and bound!


Just the hand stitching of the binding now and I’ll be done. Sometimes it’s really nice to sew up a fast quilt.

Hope you all enjoyed your long weekends as much as I did!

    Perfect weekend and great baby quilt! I just found some red/white Lizzy House ducks and snapped them up right away. They look great paired with the green and yellow!

    I love that quilt! did you make those blocks following a pattern or ad lib? I am sure that the Nice baby will love it!

      Hi Carin! Completely improv pieced! I start with strips that I sew together, chop up and sew together again… I completely wing it the whole way through. It’s so much fun!

    How sweet is that quilt?! It’s so cute! …fast :)…I’d still be on the piecing while second guessing my every move!
