A NEW Project!!

I was asked by my daughter and her fiancé if I could whip up a quick baby quilt for their close friends who just had a baby boy!!  Sure I can…I jumped at the chance to start something NEW!

So a quickie they want…a quickie they get!!  Before the word “Sure!” was out of my mouth, I had found a charm pack of ‘Wee People’ and started making hexies!  I love this fabric…PERFECT for a baby quilt!

I auditioned some fabric to make a scrappy border…

And maybe…just maybe… I might throw on baby’s name…

I will keep you posted with my progress…

Have a super Sunday and thanks for popping by!

  1. Not sure if I would call that a quickie but it looks like it is going to be adorable.

  4. A hexie would definitely not be a quickie for me. I think it would take me weeks. But this will be a sweet quilt for that lucky baby. And with your mid-arm, you'll have it quilted in no time.
