Grand Baby Quilt

A good friend of mine just became a Grandma for the first time and what's a quilter to do? Make a baby quilt of course.

The pattern is from the Spring Quilt Along, you can find the info here. The pattern is by Kate Spain and the fabric is from the Grown With Me line.

Here's a pic of the back of the quilt, I just love how the pattern looks on the back.

Here's the original quilt I made during the Spring Quilt Along. This was my first successful QAL, the first one I finished 100%.

I think this is going to be my go-to baby pattern for this year. I think it's a good way to keep track of which baby in a family has which blanket. This way if I forget which blanket I made for each baby in a family there won't be any duplicates, since there will be a different pattern used every year.

Till next time



  1. What a cute pattern and quilt Sha! I hope you don't mind if I use it as inspiration for one I want to make?

  2. Love that melon colorway you used--I am really into the cheddar/tangerine/melon/even orange colors this for me...Julierose

  3. What a great baby that you chose non-traditional colors!!! TFS

  4. Love both of your baby quilts Sha. Great colors with the Grow with Me fabric. Love everything Kate Spain does, nice pattern for a baby quilt. I really like the idea of using one baby quilt pattern a year so no worries on who already has what pattern. You're a smart cookie! hehe.

  5. I love the idea of using the same pattern for the whole year - great way to keep track of things. I also love the brightness of the fabric you chose - perfect for a baby!


What do you think? I'd love to hear from you :)
