    Maze Baby Quilt

    This is actually brighter and prettier in real life, but I am taking a picture in my darkened sewing room, before the sun rises, so I can get it washed and dried before my son goes to school. He wants to give it to his high school English teacher today. He and his wife are expecting their first child.

    As you can see it is made from scraps, including the white fabrics.

    Thank you. I was surprised when my son asked me for the quilt. I was glad I had something ready to go.

    It is adorable. I love that it is not gender specific. But the real treasure is that your son cannot wait to gift it. (Boys so rarely find this exciting.) And you are such a good mom to make this baby gem. I love the pattern. Can you share the name and or pattern designer or did you make it up?

    I wish I could say I made it up ;-) I googled maze quilts, and saw one that I liked at creativegirl.com. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I used her idea.

    This was a fun one to piece. Like doing a puzzle.

    I love your quilt and can imagine them thinking fondly of your son as they enjoy wrapping their baby. What a special son you have.

    fascinating quilt! Perfect for a growing baby .... a child playing on it with cars, driving the maze, in the future.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Beautiful baby quilt. Love the colors and the pattern! How thoughtful of your son to ask you to make this quilt for his HS English teacher. He obviously is proud of your work!

    I really like your quilt. The pattern, colors, and the quilting are a wonderful combination. What size squares are used? I will have to put this one on my "to do" list. Thanks for sharing!!
