July N4Nb Quilt

I totally forgot to take WIP photos of my July Nurses for Newborns quilt. Actually it went together quickly this time.

For participating in Hands 2 Help, I received a bundle of Amy Smart's scraps. They were clearly all one collection, and mostly 4-1/2" squares or strips. I don't know what the name of the collection is because there wasn't any selvage info. The cute aqua and red prints reminded me that I had charms left over from a Scrumptious charm pack, and the colors and prints coordinated nicely.

A couple of extra prints from my stash were added, including a red floral that worked perfectly for the back and binding. The nurses prefer darker colors since these little quilts are used on the floor for tummy time.

Simple serpentine quilting over all the seam lines will help it crinkle up nicely after it's washed. (I did prewash the red backing; I hope the charms and scraps don't bleed).

One more sweet little N4Nb quilt done! STLMQG is collecting them in November, so I still have four more months to make them.

Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict


  1. It makes sense that a darker fabric would be preferred for the backing. Another lovely quilt!

  2. This one is so soft and pretty! The red backing sounds it will be just right to use on the floor: dark enough to hide a bit of dirt, but bright and happy to celebrate a new baby :)

  3. Darling and for a great cause. I love it.
