It’s a Boy or The Rest of the Story

Fast forward five years and Elizabeth had a beautiful baby boy! Yeah, I could use the remaining fabric from the wedding quilt to make a baby quilt! And here it is:

Some details in that great light:
Continuous curves in the border squares:

“Egg and Dart” quilting motif on the inner border and “curved cross hatching” in the side setting triangles:

“Curved cross hatching” in the central setting squares:

“Continuous curve quilting in the “nine patch” blocks”

Still have fabric left? Make a giant, all-purpose tote!

    I love the idea of saving fabric for a possible future baby and making it to match a wedding quilt! Something to remember!
