    HST Baby Quilt

    I don't have a lot of baby/juvenile fabric in my stash, so I kind of have to find a pattern that works with the limited amount of the specific themed fabric I want to work with. After finally deciding what pattern I would make, I also had to decide on the alternate fabric. I chose a brown that matched a lot of the browns in the focus fabrics. I thought this would be a good choice for a quilt geared for a boy. After I sewed all my HST and layed out the quilt, I realized that I did Not like the brown I chose! I have lots of yellows in my stash, which in hindsight I think I would have been happier with. At that point I was not about to un-sew all those HST so I just forged ahead. I have been wanting to do a spiral quilt motif, so I figured this was the perfect time to try...on a quilt that already seemed like a "miss" to me. I must admit that the quilting did improve it, but I'm just not sure how I feel about gifting this one. A learning experience from start to finish :-)

    I like it too. It appears to have "movement" which a baby will like. Thanks for sharing.

    I don't know why people always seem so negative about brown. I love brown in a quilt! I think it's great for a baby. It would look darling in a crib with a brown teddy sitting in the corner, and a tousled head of hair peeking out warmly from under it.

    I like the quilt a lot! I can see a little boy placing his cars along the brown paths. I like the brown contrast with the blue. Great job using your stash!

    I like it a lot too. The bears are cute and it looks boyish with the brown. I love the circular quilting!

    What you feel as a "miss" will be a recipient's "hit." It works!

    That's a great quilt and i love the quilting! I think sometimes we are just too critical of our own work...I know I suffer from that anyway!

    Glad you 'forged ahead'... it's great! The brown works really well with the cowboy theme.

    I also think it's perfect. Pattern is great, fabrics are boyish, and the quilting is ideal. I've been wanting to try a circular motif too and only hope that mine turns out as well as yours.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
