Baby Rob's Quilt is Finished

A dear, dear friend is going to be a Gram for the third time in the spring.
This will be her first grandson.
Her son and daughter in law live in my town,
but she doesn't, so I have offered to host a baby shower for them.

And, of course, that means a baby quilt had to be made.

Both of the parents are HUGE into cycling
and sports of all kind and spend a lot of time outdoors.
Since this is the case,
I decided to make a bright quilt and found a piece of
fabric with cyclers.
(NOT bikers, as I've been told. That's a totally different look. :D)
This quilt is perfect for picnics or playing outside,
if they choose to use it for this.

The 60 degree ruler was used to make this quilt.
I bought the cycling fabric and two others... the rest came from stash.


The parents compete in races and this fabric was perfect.
I didn't realize until I was putting the pieces on my design wall
that all of the rest of the fabrics have polka dots!

I think I have a problem. :D


This one was quilted with my walking foot, following the seams
and is bound and finished.


I had a large enough piece of solid turquoise fabric in my stash
and used that for the backing.
Polka dots for the binding finished it off.

It will be labeled, washed and ready to give to the new parents
at the shower.
Baby quilts are so much fun to make!

Happy Quilting!

What a great little quilt. How fun to host a shower. My daughter has been sending me color ideas for her new baby girl (due in July) and she wants a 60 degree triangle quilt! I am happy to oblige, just need to find fabric.

That is adorable and so much fun to find fabrics that suit their likes so well. Love those neutral circles fabric. It will be the hit of the shower.
