Stellar Baby Quilt Finish


2019-04-11 11.47.52Once I finally got all my ducks in a row, this baby quilt (36″ x 40″) was easy and quick to assemble and finish.

2019-04-11 11.48.20This is made from 90 4.5″ half square triangles units I had left over from a twin-sized flying geese quilt I made last year.  I didn’t know what I wanted to do with them until I saw this quilt made by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  Then she made a tiny one, which motivated me to pull out my squares and start.  Mine is somewhere in the middle of these two.

2019-04-11 11.49.26I didn’t occur to me till I looked back at these posts and her tutorial that she paired her fabrics to create same-color diamonds.  I bet that would have been a lot easier to arrange correctly!  Oh, well, I like the color and movement in mine.

This is headed off to Jack’s Basket to welcome a new baby.

I’m linking up to Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
