This is a baby quilt I made in college for my dorm director who was expecting.
It took me about two days.  One for cutting and piecing, the next for sandwiching, binding, and tacking.
I didn't know whether the baby was a boy or girl, so I tried to make it for either.  I did 4-patch blocks in matching colors/patterns, then sewed the 4-patches together in a flying V pattern.  The solid four patches were in blue, magenta, and yellow.  The patterns were a light teal-ish plaid with the dark solids running through.  The backing was a cloud pattern that matched the plaid.  I tied the quilt using #10 crochet variegated cotton thread.  The binding is just a foldover of the backing that I sewed down to fake a binding.  It's a crib-size quilt and is fully machine washable (always important for baby!)

2nd Photo: A close-up of the piecing and plaid pattern, the backing is shown on the corner foldover.

Thank you for all the info on how you did that! I have never quilted before and want to make a baby quilt.

I really like the flying V pattern. Smiley

Making stuff is good for you!
