Baby Girl Quilts: Take Three

This is the quilt that my daughter "ordered" to go in the nursery. The colors for the nursery are pale yellow, navy and gray. Such a pretty combination! The walls of the nursery are gray and the crib is white. My daughter made some pretty sheets for the crib in navy and yellow.
44" x 52"

We talked about and looked at pictures of ideas for the design of the quilt. I sketched out several possibilities and took pictures and emailed them to her for her to decide what she liked best.

Since I am not very confident in my ability to make a whole quilt with half-square-triangles, we settled on these two rows of chevrons and the rest 4 inch squares.

I found a pretty gray paisley print for the backing and used a darker gray polka dot for the binding.

I think what I like best about this quilt is the time my daughter and I spent working on it together.

All I have left to do is sew a label for it with the baby's name and birth date!


  1. Hey Judy. I'm back into blogging and looking forward to seeing all your quilts, baby photos, and whatever else you choose to share here.

    I also wanted to ask you & Peter (got the ampersand in there!) if you would be able to pray for us. Will email you.
    Love, Rach

  2. What a pretty quilt! And I would have to agree - the best part is that you two worked on it together!
