plus sign boy quilt


Finally posting  baby boy’s quilt, even though it’s been made for quite some time…lol.

I’m just running behind in all aspects of life this pregnancy!

Mainly blogging though!

Hoping I get back into a more regular posting mode after baby comes. (t-minus 9 days!)

I am busy getting the kids room posts ready so I can’t wait to share them with you soon!

For now, his lil quilt will have to do!

It’s a basic crib size quilt, I think it’s called a plus sign quilt, or swiss cross sometimes?

I made up my own template and pattern, which I don’t have available, sorry!

I spent forever figuring out what fabrics to use, and my fab sponsor Fabricworm, was kind enough to supply the fabric for the quilt, and a few other projects in his nursery too!

I created the layout I wanted in Illustrator first so I wasn’t making unnecessary blocks, and then went to town! I ended up changing a few of the fabrics and ended up making way too many blocks even with my planning! nice, right? Sometimes projects just take a life of their own and tell you how it’s gonna go. ha!

  4. Congratulations!
    This is such a beautiful boy quilt! You are so great at picking colors/patterns!
    I’m currently working on a pinwheel quilt for my daughter and I am trying to use the fabric my grandmother passed down to me (used in my quilts and even some of my mom’s quilts growing up) and I’m having the hardest time picking the pairings for each pinwheel!

  5. That is a perfect little boy quilt!

  6. the colors are so great together!
