    Modern Baby Quilt Purples and Grays As Requested!

    My daughter is having a baby girl next months, and chose to decorate this nursery in purples and grays. I thought it was a little weird, but managed to keep my mouth shut (unusual for me!!!) So I searched my stash for purples and lilacs, and had several grays and came up with this modern style quilt. There is a free tutorial for it on Pinterest, with a title of Square Baby Quilt. But beware, there were several errors in the directions. Several of the cutting lengths were wrong. Fortunately, I only cut strips for the first block and sewed it together and caught it before cutting the rest of the fabric. After that, I double checked everything before cutting and found a few more issues. But it is pretty simple, and got it together OK.

    A very nice quilt, although I would never have thought of those colors for a nursery! To each his own, I suppose.

    I like everything about it! The colors, blocks, piecing on the back and binding!

    Love the quilt and the quilting on it. Hmmm, maybe I am a bit of a baby? No, I think this pattern could be used to make a quilt for almost anyone depending on the fabric one uses. Thanks for the heads up on the pattern and the errors.

    Gray seems to be the new theme in nurseries. My DDIL is expecting in March and got new gray nursery furniture. She is going with a nautical theme tho. But it is for a boy. I do love your quilt very pretty.

    Congratulations Grandma (not for keeping your mouth shut). It is a beautiful quilt. Enjoy your new sweet baby girl when she arrives.
