Baby girl quilt

A friend of mine just had a baby girl, so naturally… time for a quilt!

Because I don’t use precuts much, I also never really know what to do with them, but fortunately I found this great tutorial from Missouri Star.

I quilted the quilt with an all-over flower and swirl pattern using a light green thread, which blended really nicely.

Finished size is about 30″x40″, which I’m told is a good size for car trips. It’s summer in the south, so a quilt won’t be needed for car trips for a few months, but hopefully it will come in handy eventually!

    Hmmm, very good, I just got a jelly roll – but I think I’ll keep that for a pumpkin runner (all orangey) and perhaps use some of the ones that you once gave me. That tutorial is good — and I might use the one on pinwheels and charm packs too (I have one). 🙂
