You Are My Sunshine Baby Quilt

My niece is expecting her fifth child.
If it was up to her, she would have ten!
Her husband is not in agreement, however.

I just finished the baby quilt for this new little one
and will deliver it when I am in Pennsylvania next week.

This started as two jelly roll sets.
I sewed them in sets of three strips,
one set was color, white, color
and the other was white, color, white.
The white as little yellow/orange pin dots in it.

I cut the strips into wedges and sewed them into squares.


It isn't your typical baby quilt palette,
but my niece likes different things.


Plus, I like to make the baby quilts out of fabrics
that will grow with the child.


She is having a girl,
which will make two girls and three boys....
all under the age of six!


The backing isn't quite as dark as the photo is showing,
but I love the stripes with the florals on the front.

I quilted it using straight lines and squiggly lines.
This quilt is so soft and cuddly already.

Another baby quilt checked off of my list!

Happy Quilting!

Who cares if it isn't traditional, I think traditional colors went out the window long ago! It's just too cute!

Fabulous baby quilt, actually very on trend as far as what you might see in a high end baby boutique. and great way to use those glorious Kaffe Fassett jelly roll strips!

Julie said...

This is a fabulous baby quilt! The backing is a surprise and really works. Your niece definitely has her hands full. Have fun delivering it!

I think the trend is to have bright happy quilts for babies these days anyway. She will enjoy checking it out!

Wow...five children under the age of six. Your niece will be kept busy! I love the fabrics in this quilt; lovely bright and happy colours.

I always love your color schemes for baby quilts. This one is beautiful. A big family is so much fun. She sounds like our daughter with six under the age of 8. Busy mommies there. I think she needs one more to even it out though!
