Here is the baby quilt top I worked on over the weekend. I had previously made a nautical baby quilt and really enjoyed it. I purposely did not look back at pictures of the last one. I took the tiny bit of leftover stripe fabric I had, put it with some red and blue canvas print, yellow, clouds, and really old (1996!) water print. I just started cutting 4 1/2″ squares and 4 7/8″ squares to make into HSTs, and used the tiny scraps to make some four patches. I like all the strong diagonal lines. This measures 36″ x 44″ and uses 99 blocks.
And here is the one I made last year. Turns out I used 180 3 1/2″ blocks for it. Also, I included lots of white, so it has a lighter look. I like them both.
Have you been playing with fabric?

That looks like such a “freeing” quilt to make. And it will make some little one, and family, very happy.

Love both of these, Valerie! Both light and airy and feel like your at the beach watching the boats sail by.
