My mom became an addict a few years ago.  Now whenever I go home for a visit, I root around in her fabric stash for a quickie project.  I figured I could make a go at a quilt.  Enough friends were having babies that I figured a small quilt could find a good home (and I was tired of knitting baby snugglers)

Turns out I didn't invent this quilt style ... though I probably should have figured out this was NOT my idea first.  It is a string quilt made out of tiny, girly print cottons and backed with more of the same.  The batting is thin cotton and it's tied with thick cotton yarn.

It's pretty small, about 2 1/2 feet x 3 feet.  But it only took a few hours.  Unfortunately, this seems like an excuse to buy more fabric.  I'm gonna need a second job Wink

Enjoy!

Ooh, very cute. I LOVE the backing fabric! And yes, though we hate to admit it, quilting really is an excuse to buy and play with lots and lots of fabric.
