Another Baby Quilt...


Last week I published a post about a quilted baby blanket I made for a granddaughter due in March. Today I'll be showing you its "cousin" for our granddaughter due in February. {For any of you that are curious -- these are #19 and #20. Hard to believe, eh?  We're very grateful for all our grandchildren!} I used the same pattern and inspiration fabric for both quilts, but differed the accent fabrics. Here's the one I just finished for the baby due this month...


The colors for this quilt are a little brighter than the first quilt. This one has coral colors, where the other featured light pinks. Both are beautiful, just slightly different.


My favorite fabric in this quilt is this coral fabric from Cinderberry Stitches {Lecien Deer Lines}. I bought this fabric, and other fabric from this line, a few years ago and have used them on various projects. I adore it...


The other fabrics in the quilt are mostly from a fabric line at Hobby Lobby.

I chose a floral longarm quilt pattern this time. If you look carefully you can see the flowers and leaves in the quilting...


For the back I used the inspiration fabric {floral} and another complimentary fabric...


I'll be heading to California in a couple of weeks to help my daughter and her family when the baby arrives. This, and a few other things, will be tucked into my suitcase for the little one.


I have to admit I'm loving making these "piece in a day" quilts!
