Baby quilt?

I realized that I didn't get a quilt sewn for Emma yet. How is that even possible?  I was talking with my daughter about what kind of quilt she wants and we were thinking the 9-patch I made for Ryan is perfect and would allow me to measure her growth as the blocks are 3".


Isn't she adorable??

I made a couple of sample blocks, just to see how they look.  We were thinking   teal and a pink for the center. I didn't have much time to really scavenge through my fabrics so I just grabbed some pieces. 


Note that these little 9-patches are sitting on the back of a burp cloth, so it's hard to tell how they will look with alternate fabric squares. :-)

What do you think??

Hope everyone has a great Monday.
Love to you all,
Randy

  2. I love the colors too! I love the simple 9 patch pattern for a baby quilt. It will be just in time for the upcoming chilly weather.

  3. Randy what a sweet pic of you and Emma! I love the colors you used in the 9-patch blocks, may I ask what size the squares/blocks are? I just found your blog site over the weekend, I was searching for blogs where I could follow along and make blocks using my reproduction fabrics.I like the blocks you have been sharing on your blog wish I would have found you at the beginning of the year! I do not have a Google account so I hope this will post on your blog page?

  5. Oh Randy, mamma and baby are adorable. I bet you are just having a ball. Love the colors for her quilt. I didn't get a quilt made for baby Dodge either. Her mom made one and so did 2 of her aunts. I may wait for his 1st birthday. Love to you and your darling grandchildren.

  8. What a cute bundle.Reminds me of when my own were that small. Now I can even say reminds me of when my grandkids were that small not that long ago. I like your idea of pink and teal go with it.

  9. Love the pink and teal. 9 patches are such simple blocks but with great fabrics make beautiful quilts. Fit for that little beauty. No go sew, it is getting cold. LOL
