Oh Boy! {a finished quilt}

Today I’m so happy to share this fun baby boy quilt.

Baby boy quilt cover

The design was inspired by Made by Rae’s Storytime Squares pattern.  I altered it a bit because I used 5″ cut squares and did not add the last sashing border.  It was so quick and easy to put together I have decided that I must make another one in the future.  My version finishes at 36 1/2″ square, perfect for toting along in the diaper bag or covering a car seat.

The best thing about this quilt is that everything was pulled from my stash!  No trips to the store were necessary (I really need to do more of this).  I think my favorite fabric in this quilt is the donkeys wearing Wellies…adorable!

For the quilting I did a simple meander across the printed blocks and quilted the borders differently using my favorite Aurifil 50 wt. color #2021.  I love the effect it creates.

I almost had enough of this fun boy basketball print for the back.  I really wanted to use it because this baby boy’s dad loves basketball and even coaches the high school team.  So, to make it big enough I simply added a bit of the stripe fabric I used for the binding.  It worked out perfectly.

It was so nice to work this quick and fun quilt into my project list.  Instant gratification is necessary at times 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by,

  1. Those fabrics are so fun! I literally just posted my version of the storytime squares quilt top, and as soon as I saw yours, I thought, “I like it without the outer border!” I might try that on the next one that I make. I like the texture that your quilting added to the sashing.

  2. The white border with the different quilting just makes this quilt. So fun! I like the backing fabric too AND you got the striped fabric lined up squarely. I’m afraid mine would lean.

  3. I love your quilt. It really makes up so cute as a baby quilt. I might have to use your method to make one myself. I like to have things on hand if it is needed.

  4. So beautiful! great fabric and perfect quilting choice.

    I love being able to just pull from my stash–don’t get me wrong because I love shopping for more fabric, but to do an entire project with what I have on hand is a great feeling.
