Here's a just-finished baby quilt ... made from super-soft T-Shirts, and backed with cozy fleece.
Since a friend of mine recently had her fourth child -- and first boy -- I wanted the quilt to be extra boy-ish. So, I went with all-blue, and I wanted even the quilting to be distinctively "boy".
Free-motion quilting footballs, baseballs, & basketballs all over seemed like the thing to do.
It's sort of a new take on the quilting I did on my older son's NFL Quilt, and the quilting I did on my younger son's T-Shirt Sports Quilt.
Even though the quilt doesn't technically have borders, I quilted the outside row of squares with wiggly lines, to give a little bit of an "edge" to the quilt.
Even on the fleece, the quilting shows up well on the back of the quilt, which is neat.
I'm told that baby quilts made of T-Shirts are among the softest ones out there, and I'm hoping this one will be used and enjoyed.
I'm always glad when I 'm able to give something tangible to congratulate a friend and welcome a new baby.
Today's a great day to blog a finished quilt, because Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts has a Finish It Up Friday weekly link on her blog. I'll be linking this post there when her link-party is ready.
