Quilt-As-You-Go Scrappy Baby Quilt

When I found out that some of our very good friends were pregnant with their first baby I decided to make a quilt for them. I know I've mentioned before how much I love the quilt-as-you-go method, so I knew immediately that was the method I wanted to use. They are having a boy, so I decided to make a scrappy style quilt incorporating a lot of plaid and neutral fabrics.


Our friends love nature so I chose a neutral leaf print for the back and used a tree bark looking fabric for the hinges and binding. I also incorporated a few fabrics with special meanings and I finished the quilt off by machine embroidering the family's last name onto a strip in the corner of the quilt.



When the quilt was finished I washed and dried it in the washing machine, to make the fabric softer and crinkly. I love the wonderfully warm and homey feel of the finished quilt.
