October N4Nb Quilt

The Nurses for Newborns quilts are due November 10. I've been making one per month since the project was announced in February, but I still need to get October's and November's done.

The fabrics for October's quilt are leftovers from my grandson's big boy bed quilt, plus a yellow from stash.

Some quick easy piecing, just squares, but I forgot to take a pic of just the top. Here it is, pin basted, ready for quilting.

The batting is cobbled together from leftovers, too. These little quilts are great for using up batting cut-offs from larger projects.

I used up most of the fabric scraps from the big quilt, but there was just enough left to eke out the binding.

Some straight line quilting (don't you love a Hera marker?!) and, voila, we have a finish. (Sorry about the too-bright photos - it was sunnier outside than I realized. The colors in the photo above are truer.)

The back also is pieced from leftovers, but there wasn't quite enough of the one so I spliced in a strip of the other. Oops, it's hanging upside down.

October's Nurses for Newborns quilt is ready for a spin through the washer and dryer, then it can be turned in with the rest of them in November.
