Happy Friday!

I needed to whip out a baby quilt for a coworker ASAP and realized a pieced quilt would simply take too much time. I turned to my copy of Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts and made the Baby Quilt.

Baby quilt

You take one yard each of contrasting fabrics and sandwich them with some batting. I cut off the selvages and squared up my yardage and simply laid the fabrics together and cut the larger piece down to size and then did the same with the batting. No measuring! The quilt is tacked together with "ties" made with machine stitched ovals. Besides being a super easy quilt to construct, the cost is minimal. I spent less than $20 on the entire project.

Liberty of London printed shirt from Target! Wouldn't the dots with the Liberty print make a GREAT quilt?
