36 Patch Baby Quilt


I finished a baby quilt this weekend using the 36 Patches I found in my leftovers bag. I hasn't been washed and dried. So it doesn't have that crinkely feel yet. For the quilting I did some bigger meandering so that it would be softer. Sometimes I quilt my quilts pretty heavily and they can be stiff until washed a few times. I backed it with white muslin I had on hand. It's so soft and I think it will be perfect for a baby. I have a baby size whirlygig quilt and strip quilt planned next. I also have my Granny Squares quilt that I need to quilt. I may do that first. Although the other day when I was looking at it I thought I "might" want to take the borders off and make it much bigger to fit a queen size bed. We'll see. I have so many 2.5" squares that it seems like a good idea.



It seems hard to get a good picture this time of year. It was windy yesterday and overcast today. So please forgive my not so great pictures recently. I do have to find a better spot for picture taking I think. I know there are so many really neat barns and fences around our area that I'd love to use. Maybe when it's warmer I'll venture out and see what I can find.

With out seeing the quilt, can you leave the border on and just add more granny squares around it, kind of like a quilt within a quilt?
