pinwheel baby quilt




Here's a sweet little quilt that I made for a friend of mine from high school who is expecting a boy this October. I knew that she was using traditional colors in her baby's room, so I went with baby blue and navy for this quilt.





The blocks are 4" square after sewing and the sashing is 4" wide. The final quilt is 28" x 48".




I am starting to get spoiled making smaller doll quilts and baby quilts. It's so satisfying to be able to finish up a quilt in a few hours...maybe I'm getting quilting ADD?!
