A couple weeks ago, I shared with you that I was working on a quilt for my soon-to-be nephew, Huxley. But somehow, between getting a cold, and generally being a slacker I didn’t get around to finishing the quilt until late last week. Which is pretty sad, when you realize that all I actually had to do was some basic quilting and binding.
It turned out OK, though. I still got it done before Huxley arrived. As a matter of fact, we’re still waiting on him. In the mean time, I want to share a few photos of his new quilt with you.
Because of the fussy cutting, I didn’t have enough yardage left from the crib sheet to do the back, so the back is done in simple polka dot yardage. The binding on this quilt is a scrappy binding made from some of the leftover fabric from the quilt top. I’m pleased with how the quilt came out, and can’t wait to give it to Huxley.
Do you make quilts as baby gifts? If you do, do you have a go to pattern, or do you try to customize the quilt for each baby?
