WIP Wednesday: Baby Quilt

The Disapearing Four Patch blocks I made to donate to Sandy relief kind of intrigued me, and I wanted to try them with a variety of prints for a scrappy look.  I decided to use them in this baby quilt for the new son of my “nephew”,  the son of my friend and college roommate.

I used three baseball prints and some fabrics I thought coordinated, for a total of six fabrics.  (I won’t say I hang onto fabric, but one of these baseball prints was used in the nephew’s high school graduation quilt…)

I still have five more blocks to make, hopefully today, but I think I like how this is coming out.  It seems to have lots of energy.

  1. I love it! Perfect gift for a sports fan.

  2. Isn’t that appropriate that you can use some of the same fabric in quilts for both your nephew and his son? That is a neat, crisp look for those fabrics.
