My daughter is having a baby this summer - First grandbaby for me, so I am in baby quilt mode ☺️
The idea for this quilt came from Judy Martin's book Star Happy Quilts, but I wanted a much smaller version so I used the smallest size in the book and then downsized all the blocks to 4" and 8" (instead of 6" and 12") - also made smaller borders - 2" inner and 1" outer border.
Pattern: Star Happy Quilt - pattern by Judy Martin
This quilt started with the back panel which is soft cuddly flannel and the cutest mama and baby polar bear ever. Seemed perfect since this baby lives in Alaska. You can see the gentle curves I used for quilting here - I think I like the back even more than the front!
Pattern: 16 patch Checkerboard
Used a bright beautiful piece of Kaffe Fasset fabric for the backing
Baby quilts are so much fun!
