Oh hey, look at this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=361909.0.  She even posted the link to a tutorial.  Mine is slightly more complex than the tutorial as I hand stitch the binding and did a bit more quilting. 

<return to original post>

First of all, I think baby quilts are my quilting calling.  I just don't have the patience for a full sized quilt (I have one on the bed and it's tied, not quilted).  So, I saw this bunting idea on the interwebs and when I was invited to a good friend's shower that was 5 1/2 hours away I decided to make a quilt out of guilt (that's a really long ways away and I saw her last month)(and baby showers are hella boring, let's just admit it).  

Anyway, behold the easiest quilt to make ever:

The bunting and binding is all from scrap fabric in my stash.  The bunting is just zig-zag stitched on, not really properly appliqud.  I'm telling myself the eventual light fraying will go with the look.  It's all 100% cotton and the batting is organic since it is for a baby and all.  It's 36" x 48" because that fit nicely on my table when I was cutting it out.  All in all is was about four hours of work (that includes hand stitching down the binding) which is 7 hours less than the car ride would have been.

That's the only pic I took as the camera was out of batteries and I had to drop it off with a family member who was making the long trip down.  Smiley  Also, I know it'll be hard, but try not to be jealous of my insanely awesome orange vinyl couch.

That's terrific!  I love it!  Smiley  I am halfway through a second one but my zig zag isn't working anymore...  I love yours (and I love your orange vinyl couch!)

awesome quilt!
I am a big fan of the baby quilt too, the only way I will ever make another adult size quilt is to sew baby quilts together I think. Grin
