Default Baby Quilt

Last year I decided to try my hands at quilting. Just to see if, one, I could do it; and, two, would enjoy it. I signed up for a table runner class and thought this could be fun. A friend of my daughter was expecting a baby, and I decided it was the perfect opportunity to do a quilt. I told her to ask Kirk if he and his wife would be insulted to get a practice quilt. They were game, so I sweated, and occasionally cursed, my way through a beginner quilt. Well, baby Gabe turned one year old in May and I thought he deserved a quilt that may actually survive the washing machine. So here is Baby Gabes quilt 2. Im still learning, but more importantly, Im still having fun. This is a modification of a block from a Joann Fabrics block of the month class. Thanks for looking.

You're doing great! The fabric and pattern work well together. Gabe is going to be happy to have that for his own. Sounds like you enjoy quilting.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

Great quilt! Very cute!

You did a wonderful job! I do not think that is a beginner pattern! Your points look great! I think of a beginner pattern as having few points--or places that meet that show when seams that are off.
