Over the past weekend, I was able to finish another baby quilt. One of my goals this year is to create a quilt with black, white, and one other color. I found this great black and white fabric at a local quilt shop and added a shot of yellow to the mix. I have heard that babies can only see black and white when they are first born so this seems perfect for a newborn.
A while ago, my blog friend Amy at ParkCityGirl created her own pattern using squares within squares. She was kind enough to send me the pattern that she created so I could create my own! Thanks Amy! The only thing that I changed was shaving off an inch on all sides so that I could use a single piece of 44" wide material for the backing.
I found the perfect piece of black, white and yellow fabric for the backing, too. I love this print. It doesn't fit what I normally think of for a baby quilt, and I think that is why I love it so much.:)
