A Finish for Operation Shower

With all the little boys in my extended family, it's rare that I get to make girly quilts. But last spring when I found a remnant of a cute sheep print, I knew it would make a great backing for a sweet baby girl quilt. Just needed an opportunity or reason to make a girly quilt.

My guild is supporting Operation Shower by making baby quilts for expecting military families. The perfect opportunity to put that sheep print to good use! Earlier this week I was able to get it quilted and bound, so now it just needs a spin through the washer and it'll be ready to go. Since we don't meet in December, I'll deliver it at the January meeting.

No sheep print on the front, but the palette was definitely inspired by the print. The sheep became the back, with a little help to bring it up to size.

A loose meander made for quick quilting, and will keep it soft and drapey. So cute!

Since this is a donation quilt for a baby, I'm going to include it in my Rocking Chair Quilts tab above. 

Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict


  1. What a sweet little quilt! I haven't attempted this pattern yet, even though it lends itself so well to baby quilts. Happy quilting!

  2. What a beautiful and sweet finish. This one will be delightful to snuggle straight out of the dryer!!

  3. Very cute finish! Definitely perfect for a little girl.

  4. It's just so sweet for a baby girl and you get warm fuzzy feelings from donating it;)

  5. Perfectly sweet little finish! I'm sure some lucky family will treasure it. Thank you for supporting our military families!

  6. Operation Shower sounds like a great program -- and your sheep print is darling (and perfect for that quilt's back).
