OK, Maybe It's Not So Bad After All

I still wouldn't say improv is my thing, but this little Nurses for Newborns quilt maybe isn't as bad as I originally thought it was. Anyway, it'll serve the purpose, a Tummy Time mat for a young baby.

Simple wavy line quilting to keep it soft. It'll crinkle up  a bit more after it's washed.

Backing from stash. Personally, I like the back better than the front.

My stash is becoming depleted of suitable prints in large enough pieces. Since I knew I wanted to use the stripe from the front for the binding, I was able to find a green that works.

This makes N4Nb quilt # 8 that I've made this year.

The Nurses for Newborns quilts are due at the November 10th meeting, so I'll make two more between now and then.

  1. The colours and stripes are lovely and bright. Know what you mean about something not quite being your thing. But a hand made quilt is always a lovely gift.

  2. I think it turned out great! It will be fun to see the lovely stack of 10 quilts you donate in November.

  3. Jan, this reminds me of a swimming pool and I really like it....the FRONT that is ;-)

  4. I think this quilt is just lovely. It's a scrappy delight and for a baby, there's a lot of movement to keep them alert. What exactly is Nurses for Newborns? I never heard of that organization or charity.

  5. Love it; both the front and back!!! Another fun, happy quilt!!! You are so generous with your time and stash!!!

  6. Love it! I think I own that binding fabric!

  7. It's always nice when something grows on you. It turned out nicely, very bright and baby friendly.
