But I decided to give it another go, this time in a baby size that would be much more doable!
My best friend Kristen (who I threw the overseas baby shower for last time) is expecting her second son, and we all know how much I love the colors blue and green!
I wandered through JoAnn's for a while until I happened upon these fun and more importantly soft fabrics. The chevron pattern was very easy, using the same half square triangle units that I used on my patchwork pillow.
I used the same instructions for piecing it together and the binding from my last quilt. There is one change I would do next time around. I used more batting with this quilt to make it thicker, but still used the same 2.5 inch wide strips for the binding. Unlike my last (thinner) quilt, the 2.5 inch width wasn't quite big enough for the binding. Next time around I'll go for 3 or 3.5 inch.
I will probably go just a little bit bigger with the next baby quilt. I really wanted to use my leftover light blue fabric on the back, so I cut my front piece down to match those measurments.
For only my second quilt, I don't think it's half bad. Best part is that Kristen loved it!
