Design Wall Monday- Baby Quilt

On my design wall today is a baby quilt in development. My neighbours are having a baby soon and have decided to wait to find out the gender when it arrives.  So this quilt will be for their daughter, or if they have a son, I will need to figure out something else!

I just cut up some fat quarters in 2.5" strips and sewed them around 4.5" squares. I ran out of the center squares and had to piece a few of the center blocks, but I am relieved that I had enough fabric to finish 30 blocks. 
To see more design walls, hop over to Patchwork Times.

That quilt is adorable!! I love the fabrics you used. Let's hope for a girl! (By the way, very thoughtful of you to make your neighbors a quilt for their baby!)

Very nice - hopefully it is a girl! I like that you pieced a few of the center squares.

The baby will never notice the extra seams in the centers. Nice of you to make a quilt for your neighbors.

its pretty, such a simple block but effect due to great fabric choices. Have to admit to making a few baby quilts like this.
fun, quick and easy. Great for baby quilts that will actually be used in mho!

Baby quilts are so much fun to play with. And so quick! Hoping for a girl.

Aren't quilts for little girls so fun to make. I think you should get one done for a little boy, just in case though. You can always keep it for another baby in the future or give it away as a cuddle quilt!

Love the quilt. HOw about making the same in blues and use it as the reverse ( or the front if baby is a boy. A double sided quilt could be the answer xx

What a sweet baby quilt! I love easy quilts for when I need a charity quilt or...baby quilts! I'm sure this will find a home even if your neighbors have a boy.
