Oh Baby!

Last night I went to another baby shower and made this stroller quilt.  The size is 32" x 32", perfect to fit in a stroller and not overhang to get caught up in the wheels.  I used a pattern out of the "Love Patchwork & Quilting" magazine, issue 3.  It was the first issue I have purchased, maybe the last. Why?? Twelve dollars for a magazine issue... wow... sealed up in plastic so you couldn't browse through it. Might as well buy a pattern I really love instead.. Just sayin..

The block includes 2 1/2 " sqs, 3" sqs, 5" sqs, 2 1/2 x various lengths -- 4 1/2", 6 1/2"

4 blocks to make 1 bigger block

block assembled
quilt layout - fabric I used Heather Ross Briar Rose, Pearl Bracelets by Lizzy House and the green is Pam Kitty Morning Ping Pong 2 

Finished quilt front - binding is Moda Simply Color, FMQ is just horizontal waves in pink

Back of the quilt - did a little math to get an exact size to match the front - a nine patch variation
Hope this quilt is a warm welcome into the world for baby girl Everly Browne!
