Weekend Baby Quilts

It seems to be that time of the year again! Lots of people I know are expecting babies over the coming months. Perfect time for me to start working on some quick and easy baby quilts for them!

So far this weekend I have started and finished two!

I collect a fair few premade cot panels and they often float around my stash for months [or years!] before I use them.

The first is for a good friend of mine, who isn't finding out if they are having a boy or a girl. I used a lovely woodland creatures panel with a yellow backing to create a bright and happy unisex quilt.

For interest I added a strip of a co-ordinating fabric in the middle of the backing piece. I bound it with another co-ordinate from the range which was really similar to the panel.

The second is for a colleague and his wife, who are expecting a little girl in a few months. I thought this Bambi cot panel would work perfectly!

I backed in a light pink and a strip of the co-ordinating Bambi fabric and bound it off in white.

I do hope the recipients like these quilts as much as I enjoyed making them!
