Quilt With Us

Found about 2" of snow this morning, but it's melting quickly.  It's still a good reason to stay inside and get some quilting/sewing done.  My DH's nephew and his wife are expecting their second child in June, so I am making them a baby quilt.  Instead of cutting triangles AND squares for this, I cut all squares and actually cheated a little as some are pre-cut charm squares (2.5") in pretty colors and patterns.  Set on point the colored squares make a cross pattern.  I also sewed on the diagonal.  My dilemma has been, OK, now what?  It only measures 23"X 29".  So, I added a 2" white border and bought a bright blue solid for an outer border.  I had thought about a pieced border or "piano keys", but I don't want to add anymore confusion to the design.  Today I am working on the outer border and hope to get to the sandwiching stage.

Perfect pattern for a baby  quilt.  Nicely done!  You just can't beat scrap quilts in my book.

Thank you all for the comments!  I've added a couple of simple borders and will sandwich it tonight while watching TV.  I hope the parents and baby (boy) will like it.  ;o)

What an adorable baby quilt.  Great way to use up those squares.

I am sure your border idea will work. If it still need something maybe 2 1/2" blocks one after another, set between the white and blue border. I Love all the bright colors. It reminds me of hugs and kiss for love.
