There is nothing better than a new baby. Especially when it’s a new nephew!
My sister in law loves Little Golden Books and purchased a Pokey Puppy panel she wanted made into a quilt (I couldn’t find a good link for the panel but you can Google it and there are some options). The panel is really made to be a fabric book, but it also works great for a cute baby quilt. It was a great challenge for me!
I cut the blocks 7 1/2″ square out of the panel, and added the 3″ pinwheels and 3″ x 7 1/2″ sashing strips to make it a nice crib size.
It has minky on the back and a warm batting, so I quilted it with simple straight lines. There wasn’t enough book blocks for the layout, so I added the ruler fabric (an out of print Moda fabric) to fill in the extra spaces.
Before sewing the quilt top together I added his name to one block with an easy loop stitch.
It was such a fun quilt to make for baby Bowen. Also he smells like a newborn, and I miss having a newborn!
