This quilt caused quite the quandary...is it Gingham, or is it Buffalo Check??! Oiy. I wasted a good 15 minutes of my life with my good friend Google trying to figure it out.
In the end all I found out was Buffalo Check was a bigger version of Gingham...so I'm calling this quilt pattern Gingham because it sounds cuter than Buffalo Check.
Eventually the baby will share a room with Sophie, so I stuck with coral colors that match the quilt I made for Sophie's bed . I picked my solids first since they are the majority of the quilt, and sprinkled in a few prints here and there.
This little quilt measures 38 ½" x 45 ½", and I cut my squares 4".
If you want to make a Gingham baby quilt like this you'll need 143 - 4" squares (42 dark squares, 71 light squares, and 30 white squares).
Thanks for all the input on my gray walls in my last post....you were almost exactly half and half!
My husband saw my post and let me know I'm prohibited from painting anything until I'm out of my crazy-pregnant-lady-nesting faze.
He's a smart man...and I think he suspects he'd be the one painting (which is true). ;)
