    I made this for my new grand daughter. I didn't know the sex at the time I made it so I tried to do it in a safe pattern. I also made the matching bag with pockets inside and on both sides of the bag on the outside for bottles.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words.........I just love to put quilts together. I just wished I had more time to do it in. Right now I am helping a friend with a scrappy quilt. This is her very first one ever. She is 68 yrs young and I see many more in her future..

    One of these days I want to attempt a bargello quilt, but will have to wait until I have more free time to do it. I just love the looks of them!!

    I love the quilt and matching bag!! Can you tell me what pattern you used for the diaper bag or was it your own? I have been trying to find a good diaper bag pattern for a while.
    thanks

    These are soooooooooo cute! Great idea making the bag to match the quilt. There's one more quilt pattern for my "to do" list. Very pretty!

    Cassandra...........when I did the bag, I just made one of the blocks that I used in the blanket and went from there. I quilted as I went. Then I did the sides because I wanted to make the pockets. Then I measured for the bottom of the bag. I also did the inside pockets before I put it all together. What I did for the straps was take the heavy black straps usually used on backpacks and covered it with matching fabric. That way I knew it would be heavy enough. I just made a flap for the top and stitched it on. I used heavy duty snaps to do mine, but velcro would also work just as good.

    I have tons of patterns for bags, but none that I liked as a diaper bag (or whatever else it could be used for). So I just made my own.
