During all this I try to stay clear of the mess. There is no better way to do that than to get into my quilting studio and find a new project, any project to avoid the mess until I can vacuum up the debris at the end of a day.
Yes, a baby quilt. I had lots of left over Big Sky by Annie Brady charm squares from my runner I made earlier last month.
And it was done pretty easily and quickly.Have you noticed in the last few years that baby quilts are not so babyish? I wondered about that as I put this together. It is only 40 inches square so only really big enough for a baby/child quilt. I did not have enough fabric to border it, just enough to bind it. The binding will be that black and white print in it. I like it a lot and the little bear print squares seem just enough to call it a baby quilt. I'll quilt it myself and stash it away for that gift that will eventually come up for a little one.
